The True Colours Trust is passionate about making a difference to the lives of children with special needs and their families and supporting people with life-limiting and/or life-threatening illnesses. The Trustees believe that all children and their families should be able to live happy, fulfilled lives with opportunities for play, friendship and education without the burdens of poverty, exclusion and discrimination.
The Trust works closely with organisations that share its ambition to provide imaginative, practical and often ground-breaking services in addition to delivering programmes that bring about sustained change whether at the level of policy or practice. The Trust's work focuses on the major barriers and challenges experienced by families, children and young people with complex disabilities and/or life-limiting and life-threatening conditions.
The Trustees' grant making focuses on the following three areas:
- Improving the service delivery and support offered to children with complex disabilities, their families and siblings in the UK.
- Strengthening palliative care services for children in the UK.
- Promoting and developing palliative care for adults and children in Africa.
