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

"I am a strong person because Conductive Education has given me ways to adapt movement to be safe and strong within my capabilities.
Rainbow has changed my existence in so many brilliant and positive ways - I wouldn't be as mobile and happy as I am without you." Thank You

- Paula - MS Group

" 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

"I feel sure Conductive Education has at least slowed the acceleration of my symptoms. In some cases improving things."
