Care at Rainbows

We provide hospice care for children and young people aged 0 to 30 years with life-limiting and life threatening conditions, and their whole family, across the East Midlands. The care we offer is wide ranging; respite and short breaks, emergency care, symptom management, palliative care and end of life care.
