With thanks to all the amazing Charitable Trusts and Foundations who support us including

The National Lottery Community Fund

The National Lottery Community Fund are providing amazing funding to support the transformation of Rainbows community services. A grant over 2 years will mean that we are able to develop and grow our community outreach services and reach more children and families as well as providing more services where they are needed.

Moto Foundation

Moto Foundation have supported physiotherapy in our hydrotherapy pool. The award from Moto Foundation means we can provide beneficial therapeutic water activities and hydrotherapy sessions for children and young people with serious and terminal conditions from across the East Midlands.

Jessie’s Fund

Jessie’s Fund made their donation to help with our Music Therapy sessions, which are provided to hundreds of babies, children and young people with serious and terminal illnesses. Our Music Therapist, Rosie, works at the Hospice in Loughborough, but also travels across the East Midlands to visit children and young people in their homes and in hospitals.

East Midlands Airport Community Fund

East Midlands Airport Community Fund have helped fund the installation of our electric car charging points. The grant from the Community Fund has meant we have been able to install a number of charging points as well as the infrastructure to expand the provision in the future.

Morrisons and Together for Short Lives Building a Legacy Together Grant

As part of the partnership between Together for Short Lives and Morrisons, the Building a Legacy Together grant was created to fund vital renovations and purchase specialist equipment to further support families caring for a child with a life-limiting condition. Rainbows were awarded a grant to refurbish the kitchen in our young people’s lounge, making it fully accessible for the young people who come to Rainbows.
