2023 GSK IMPACT Awards: The Rainbow Foundation

The Rainbow Foundation offers a vast range of health, care, and wellbeing services predominately targeting older people in rural communities across Wrexham and North Shropshire.

The charity’s three wellbeing hubs offer services designed to build confidence, strength and resilience and combat loneliness, whilst its home care service supports people leaving hospital. Its highly successful physiotherapist-led classes also support people at risk of, or recovering from falls.

Judges’ comments

The Rainbow Foundation is a small but rapidly expanding charity which is doing exemplary work to help older people in rural parts of Wrexham and Shropshire maintain their wellbeing and independence. The charity has imaginatively and proactively developed solutions to local issues, for example by launching their own home care service to fill a gap in local provision and allow people to be swiftly discharged home from hospital. Their work to prevent falls in older people is also yielding impressive results. The Rainbow Foundation’s integrated and holistic range of care services for older people is a model for other rural areas.
