Our 2018 TESSA charity

When a child is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness, family life is turned upside down and time becomes more precious than ever.

You’re thrown into a world you never expected to see; coping with the worry and grief of your child’s illness while navigating a health system of which you have no experience – often travelling to a hospital miles away from home. 

Through all of this, daily life – working, shopping, cooking meals, taking siblings to school – must continue.

Rainbow Trust pairs each family with a dedicated, expert Family Support Worker to help them face and make the most of each new day.

With our support, families have more time together, doing what they feel is most important.

Our vision is that every family in the UK who has a child with a life-threatening illness will receive the support they need.
