Sadly, some children simply don’t live long enough. Since 1994 Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People has opened their doors and hearts to those children and the people who love them most.

And now more than ever, they need your help to keep on bringing care and happiness to their children and families. As the East Midlands’ only hospice for children and young people, Rainbows is a place where life-limited children and their families can take a break from life’s worries and heartaches.

Their incredible team of people helps relieve symptoms, improve quality of life, support parents and siblings through their bereavement and care for children until the end.


Rainbows cares for around 220 families every year, many of them from the area around the Kilomathon. They help them to have fun and really enjoy a short life through their specialist multi-sensory facilities, adapted accommodation, hydrotherapy pool and music room to name a few. The truth is that they can’t do their work without the help of people like you – and we know that together we can bring more love, smiles and laughter to the children and families.
