RAINBOW CORNER IS A 6 BEDDED CHILDREN’S HOME PROVIDING OVERNIGHT SHORT BREAKS AND DAY CARE FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE WITH ADDITIONAL NEEDS, AGED 3 TO 19 YEARS
Rainbow Corner has been adapted to meet the physical needs of the children that stay with us. This means that we can provide care for children and young people who have multiple and profound learning disabilities, including those on the Autistic Spectrum, those with complex medical health needs and physical disabilities.
We offer daytime, weekend and overnight care for children and young people with additional needs living in the Andover and surrounding areas. This enables the family to have planned breaks from their carer role, knowing that their child’s needs and wishes will be met from our caring and fully trained Rainbow Corner team.
We can also provide emergency care for a child or young person if we have the capacity available.
The ethos of Rainbow Corner is to provide a safe ‘home from home’ environment for all children whilst with us, maintaining a level of consistency for each individual child. Staff continue with the children’s individual programmes such as sleep, mealtimes, behaviour, toileting, independence, emotional and social development related, in liaison with their school, parents and other relevant professionals.
Thank you so much for all the super fantastic work you all do at RC. You are all sooo welcoming, caring and professional. We feel super relaxed when DJ is with you and we know that you are capable of looking after him well and giving him a really nice time away from home. We value you and appreciate you very much indeed. Thank you.
Things are going extremely well and knowing my Y.P. has somewhere suitable for respite is a great relief.
I think Isabella would like to stay a little longer, she's never keen to be picked up! Isabella appears to really enjoy her stays at Rainbow Corner, she gives a big smile upon arrival and is often unhappy to leave! Ami and her team are getting to know Isabella well and we feel reassured that Isabella’s best interests and safety are of utmost importance to them.
I think you do everything you can to make his experience a good and happy one. Fab team, lovely place, lovely manager. Thank you for your support. We think you're doing an amazing job, especially at such a difficult time.
My daughter loved her stay and was very happy and calm coming home. Great communication from all staff.
Grateful for Rainbow Corner and the service it offers for Ella and a break for us. Rainbow Corner is much needed and much appreciated! Keep up the excellent work.
Lovely welcoming place that makes Summer feel comfortable staying and makes me feel comfortable knowing she is happy and well cared for.
In November 2021 we were inspected by Ofsted. They rated our care as good across the board. You can access our report here.
