What we do at Rainbow

We inspire, motivate and enable those affected by neurological conditions

Here at the centre we support children, adults and those caring for them, who are affected by Cerebral Palsy, stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s, and head injuries. We do this through a system of learning called Conductive Education and by providing information and signposting.

Participants are encouraged to take an active role in their own development, learning 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 they CAN DO and help them to reach their full potential.

I am very good at keeping my balance whilst holding my arm out straight, so I can play with the skating penguin on the ice. 

 

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."

“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”.
