As the East Midlands only hospice for children and young people, Rainbows is a place where life limited children and their families can find care and support. Our incredible team of people help relieve symptoms, improve quality of life, care for children at the end of life and support parents and siblings through their bereavement. Since 1994 we’ve opened our doors and hearts to those children and the people who love them most.
Volunteers support everything we do at Rainbows and are pivotal to our success. From gardening and housekeeping to fundraising, working in our retail outlets, supporting our care team and administration to name but a few roles. Volunteers at the hospice work as part of the wider team and help to bring love, smiles and laughter to the children, young people and families that we support.
