Children’s charities in the UK operate for a variety of worthwhile causes. This can range from financial support, education, shelter, to food and healthcare services. With so many to choose from, it can be hard to know exactly where your money is going and how it will benefit the children that need it. When considering which charity to donate to, it can be helpful to think about causes close to your heart. Perhaps you may have personal experience of a charity, or a close family or friend has been touched by a particular organisation. Or maybe you feel passionately about a specific issue and want to support a charity that deals with this. Choosing a charity that has a personal interest to you can help connect you with the cause and help motivate supporters to get involved.
The number of seriously ill children in England has trebled over the last 17 years and is continuing to rise. Thousands of families must face the very real possibility that their child may die and struggle to cope on a day-to-day basis. Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity supports families who have a child aged 0-18 years with a life-threatening or terminal illness. The service Rainbow Trust provides is available at no cost to families.
With the generosity of our supporters, Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity has been supporting families with seriously or terminally ill children for 35 years.
