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

"Fin has generally changed and developed in every way possible. He is more confident and settled in his groups and the routine of the sessions has helped him be more settled in other situations. His interaction with other and his surroundings have also improved. Fin's physical development has greatly improved in all areas, but most noticeably his willingness to learn and stay motivated."

- Carly Lyons - Fin's Mum

" My first visit to the Rainbow Centre we experienced a smile and welcome; this applied to every member of staff from the office to the service - very nice positive people.
My shoulder pain has almost gone, sleeping better, signs that my arm is awakening. There is a long haul ahead but I AM optimistic of some degree of recovery. "

- John - Stroke Group

"Since attending Rainbow I am more confident in walking - rarely using my cane nowadays. I know I can slow the progress of PD by using Conductive Education techniques, it promulgates an attitude that you CAN improve your body."

- Pauline - PD Group
