Our aim with the Rainbow Retreat is to send children and their families on a well-needed respite break. To make memories, have fun and more importantly, to get a break from hospital life while undergoing treatment for a life-limiting illness. No child should have to go through these troubling times and for some, grow their angel wings too soon.
Rebuilding a family after a recent bereavement is also something we feel is so important.
If you would like more info or have any questions, please do not hesitate to call Kelly, the Rainbow Retreat manager on 07874 212901.

Sophie’s Rainbow Retreat is located at Rockley Park, Poole.
At Rockley Park, you’ll be spoilt for nature to explore as the park is situated on the lovely heathland of Ham Common nature reserve. With its adjoining beach, lake, and woodland, Ham Common is a wonderful place to visit and you may even spot some of the rare wildlife that calls it home. Just around the corner is the bustling Poole Harbour with all its wonderful views. This park is the perfect child-friendly retreat and holiday.
From the M27 join the A31 and then follow signs for Poole town centre. Once in the centre follow signs to Rockley Park. Alternatively, take the Dorchester bypass to Poole and follow signs to the park.
