No parent ever wants to hear that their child has cancer, organ failure or a genetic disorder that they could die from. Nobody knows how they would react or how they would cope.

Family life is turned upside down and time becomes more precious than ever.

But everyday life doesn’t stop when a child becomes seriously ill. Rainbow Trust’s support isn’t about one single experience or memory, it’s about making every moment count. Every hour of our support helps families to cope.

Why now?

With more demand for our services than we can meet, there is a growing urgency to increase the help available for families who struggle to cope. In the last decade, family referrals to Rainbow Trust have doubled.

We think It’s About Time that every family with a seriously ill child had the support they need to help them cope at an extremely difficult time. Can you help?
