What we do at Rainbow

We inspire and motivate

At The Rainbow Centre we inspire and support children with Cerebral Palsy and adults with a stroke, MS and Parkinson’s disease, adult Cerebral Palsy, Head Injury and their families. Through a system of learning called Conductive Education we encourage and teach our children/participants to take an active role in their own development. Our children/participants learn new ways to become active and happy individuals who are proud of their own achievements and ready for life’s challenges. We focus on what you CAN DO and inspire all children/participants reach their full potential.

Wat people say about us

When I came to Rainbow I could do some things but not what I do now.
I walk better and also I can walk a bit unaided and I could not do it at all. Rainbow has taught me some things and have learned a good deal more and really am very grateful. Good luck to you all.

“The Rainbow Centre, for me, was a huge learning curve. I was exposed to an entirely new concept called Conductive Education and feel that everyone should be aware of it! The staff really understand their service users and take an individual approach with them all. They make adults feel comfortable and (from what I witnessed) empowered, and motivate the children so well that their tasks do not feel at all a burden. It is a positive, educative, welcoming Centre and I have thoroughly enjoyed my two weeks’ placement here”.
