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.

I was able to take continuous steps for about 3 metres with the help of mummy and Nora.

 

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

“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”.

The NHS had given up on me I couldn't sit up without falling over and no way could I think about standing. They told my wife I'd never be able to do anything.
I'm over-joyed Tony has started to stand; I feel quite confident to help him now.
