Family Advisory Committee


Family Advisory Committee

Since its inception in 2003, the goal of Rainbow Place has been to provide the best possible support to the children and families who are in our care.

The demands on our services have changed significantly since then and to ensure we continue to deliver on this goal, we have identified the need to listen to our parents’ voices as they share their unique experiences and knowledge of caring for a child with special needs. We believe the sharing of this information will help guide our Rainbow Place service into the future.

We’ve looked at options for how we could best capture this information and in late 2019, established a Family Advisory Committee to provide Rainbow Place with this support. The committee is made up of parents who have had a personal experience with Rainbow Place and the group comes together every second month to listen to the challenges the service faces and share their ideas and expertise.
