Family support

Have your say

Wishing all of your readers a very Happy New Year.

This year marks 30 years of Rainbow Trust supporting families with a life-threatened or terminally ill child in England.

A team of family support workers has worked tirelessly supporting families in the home, hospital and community in the East Midlands but we need your support to continue this care.

Rainbow Trust receives just 2 per cent government funding and relies almost entirely on public donations.

There are hundreds of families in the East Midlands with seriously ill children who could still benefit from our help.

I want you to join me in supporting Rainbow Trust by making a £3 donation to help them reach their goal of supporting every family in the UK.

Donations can be made online at, by calling 01372 220086 or by texting RAINBOW to 70111 to make a £3 donation.
