Transforming Rainbow House
We're transforming Rainbow House thanks to our generous supporters
Rainbow House is an assessment, diagnosis and treatment centre located at Ayrshire Central Hospital, for children and young people who require care relating to their development.
More than 3,500 children are cared for at Rainbow House each year by a variety of teams including Physiotherapists, Psychologists, Occupational Therapists , Speech & Language Therapists, Orthotics Teams and Nursing Teams.
Before our enhancement project began, the environment felt very clinical, and didn't contribute to a positive hospital experience which reduces worry and anxiety in children and their families.
Thanks to incredible support from our generous funders, we have been able to begin our transformation of the waiting rooms, reception, corridors and clinical rooms. We would like to share our heartfelt thanks with our generous supporters and the following Trusts and Corporate Partners, for making this possible:
- Reo Stakis Charitable Foundation
- Mr & Mrs William Donald’s Memorial Trust
- The Caldwell Foundation
- Precision Tooling Services
- Ardagh Glass
- The Brownlie Charitable Trust
- The B&Q Foundation
Now, Rainbow House provides bright, colourful, calming and welcoming areas to alleviate any worry and anxiety felt by young patients. The colourful décor delivers a welcomed distraction and relaxing spaces to create positive hospital experiences for children and their families.
"I would like to comment that the décor so far is absolutely wonderful. What a bright and cheery place to work. Well done and thank you to all involved!"
"What a transformation downstairs!"
It is amazing. What a transformation - love it."
We will be continuing to enhance Rainbow House over the coming weeks, so watch this space for more updates!
