Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity provides practical and emotional support to families who have a child with a life threatening or terminal illness. The Greater Manchester team covers Manchester and Greater Manchester, Cumbria & Lancashire. Rainbow Trust’s Family Support Workers join the family in their own home and are there to provide practical support. We are contactable 24 hours a day for families in crisis from diagnosis, through treatment and even after bereavement. Referrals need to be made pre-bereavement.
