History of the Rainbow Centre – Cams School

Fortunately, when the Rainbow Centre was required to vacate the premises at Quay Street in 2004, another temporary solution was found in a pair of portacabins in the grounds of Cams Hill School, Fareham. These were in a dilapidated state and Fareham Borough Council and Hampshire County Council facilitated structural refurbishment and the installation of services. Rainbow Centre Staff and volunteers set about internal repairing, cleaning and decorating.

Before After

The Rainbow Centre’s stay at Cams Hill School was always planned to be temporary, and once established, co-founder Helen Somerset How started the “Pot of Gold” appeal with the objective of financing the bulding of a permanent home.
