Rainbows Hospice

About us

For the last 25 years we’ve opened our doors and hearts to children and young people in the East Midlands with life-limiting conditions, and the people who love them most. As we celebrate our 25th year as the only hospice of its kind in the East Midlands, we need your help to keep brightening short lives.
