Rainbow Trust’s new report, Hidden Savings, shows how our tailored support not only helps the whole family to cope better but also saves public services around £2 million per year.

Rainbow Trust support can, for example, prevent families from missing hospital appointments, help siblings and parents to manage their emotional health, and can reduce pressure on NHS patient transport.

But our support is undervalued and underfunded. At the moment only three per cent of Rainbow Trust’s funding comes from the public purse.

Will you help us to change this? Please sign our letter to Government, by signing below you are helping us call on local decision makers to make sure that services providing emotional and practical support for families with a life threatened or terminally ill child are not excluded from local funding streams, and for additional child social care funding to be provided by whichever party forms the next UK government.

This petition is now closed.

We’ll be updating you in the coming months.
