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, 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

“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”.

"Sophia is now more independent which allows not only her but the rest of the family more freedom. We have also learnt songs and activities we can integrate into daily life in order to help Sophia develop and reach her full potential"

- Juliet - Sophia's Mum

"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
