Our work in the community

Our current office charity is Rainbow Trust. Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity supports families who have a child aged 0-18 years with a life-threatening or terminal illness. Thousands of families have to face the very real possibility that their child may die and struggle to cope on a day to day basis. The Rainbow Trust Family Support Workers provide a lifeline to these families and children.
