We are delighted that our CEO Gabby Machell won the ‘Making a Difference Award’ at the Markel 3rd Sector Care Awards on Friday 6th December 2019. "This winner’s dedication shone through to the judges. They described this winner as ‘exceptional’, leading with their heart and their head in terms of strategic details. The winner is a role model for their employees and has inspired loyalty and trust within their organisation, expecting the values to be embedded by all the ‘family’ of staff."
We are pleased to announce that we are the Skills for Care Accolade 2019 Winner of Best Employer of over 250 people Skills for Care Accolades celebrate adult social care employers committed to delivering high quality care.

"It’s really good – just go for it and do all you can. "
"I started in November 2017 as a support worker, after studying health and social care, public health, at university. I attended all the training. It’s really nice working with service users, completely different – in a good way – from studying. You get to know the service users and get to know them better. WSPLD push you too – they encourage you. "
Arrange a sponsorship or fundraising event.
Give up some of your free time and volunteer.
““Cecilia is clearly highly skilled at person centred care. In an alien situation, she excelled, organising support for an individual with learning disabilities so that they understood and could make choices about their end of life experience.” (Markel 3rd Sector Care Awards 2019, Judges' Special Recognition Award)”
Cecilia Adetunji, Team Manager
“I was looking forward to starting volunteering as I wanted to help out in any way I could. I met lots of great people and really value the friendships I have formed since I started volunteering.”
Ellie Atherton, Volunteer Buddy
“The standard of care my child was given was amazing. My daughter progressed enormously at Rainbow and I will always be grateful for all they did for her.”
Rainbow parent, Kiana’s mum
