Rainbow Trust

Celebrate 30 years of the Rainbow Trust with Surrey Hills Community Radio as we feature this great organisation as our Featured Charity for January 2016.

Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity provides expert social palliative care to families when their child has a life threatening or terminal illness. Offering emotional and practical support, assistance is available for families 24 hours a day.  Individually tailored high quality care is offered from diagnosis through to treatment and, should a family become bereaved, the charity will continue to support them for as long as they are needed, helping family members cope with the present and preparing them for the future.

Rainbow Trust relies almost entirely on voluntary donations and through the outstanding generosity of its supporters is able to help over 1,900 families a year throughout England. However, this is only a third of the families that could benefit from its help. The charity’s vision is that one day all terminally ill children and their families will have access to a Rainbow Trust Family Support Worker.

We have a host of interviews lined up to demonstrate the much needed work performed by this charity. Alongside our awareness campaign for the Rainbow Trust we will also be promoting their handy donation text line. If anything you hear on air makes you reach for your phone to donate text ‘Rainbow’ to 70111 so you can give £3 or visit rainbowtrust.org.uk
