welcome to rainbow stars

We’re an inclusive and friendly community group providing support for parents, carers, siblings, and individuals with disabilities or those seeking a diagnosis. Our Sleaford hub offers events for all ages and abilities, including a fabulous multi-sensory room.

All our committee members are DBS checked for your peace of mind. Whether you’re stopping by for a chat or to enjoy our facilities, everyone is welcome at Rainbow Stars. We’re voluntary and self-funded, supported by our amazing community. At Rainbow Stars, we work with the NHS, education authorities, and legal professionals, but most importantly, we work with families to support them. Join us in creating a warm and supportive environment where everyone feels valued and included.
