We work very closely in partnership with many agencies and many of our activities and services depend on our partners' continued support.

Partner agencies that provide services free at Rainbow Haven in Gorton include:

  • British Red Cross: destitution support
  • St Clement's Childrens Centre:  a weekly creche session and outreach work with families
  • Workers Educational Association: ESOL classes
  • Primary Care Mental Health Team: mental health support
  • Refugee Action - student and volunteer advice support
  • BHA - sexual health information and HIV testing

In Salford our partner agencies include:

  • WEA - ESOL classes
  • Health Improvement Service - health and well-being activities

We are closely linked to many other organisations in both Manchester and Salford, for joint work on projects, referrals for individuals and families, access to information, training and additional activities in the drop-ins.

Rainbow Haven is always keen to develop new links with organisations and happy to be contacted if you are interested in knowing more about our partnership work or exploring ways of working in partnership.


We are grateful to all our funders for supporting our work and enabling us to keep providing much needed services. Funding for our work comes from grant making trusts and also smaller donations and individual contributions.

We are very pleased to announce that our Lloyds Bank Foundation funded new post is now filled; Salina Dutton has taken on the role of Activities and Volunteer Coordinator post.

We were delighted to learn that eAsset Management has decided to fund one of our weekly creches for a year. This will pay for our Salford creche to support parents attending the two English classes there.
