By taking part in the Big Hour Challenge you’ll make sure that Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity can be there for seriously ill children and their families.

From help with looking after brothers and sisters, transport to hospital, understanding terminology to listening when parents just want to talk or know how to deal with difficult questions. Rainbow Trust is there, whenever we are needed and whenever we are needed. No one else does what we do.

It costs just £24 to provide families an hour of life-changing support from a Rainbow Trust Family Support Worker but we need your help to reach many more families. Rainbow Trust relies almost entirely on donations from people like you to provide our valuable service.

Sean is a Family Support Worker from our Manchester team, one of 9 teams across the country. Sean provides vital emotional and practical support to families who have a seriously ill child.

Sean’s post is funded by BBC Children in Need who filmed this video which shows the kind of support a Rainbow Trust Family Support Worker provides.

We provide support to over 2,300 families but we need your help to reach more.
