The Rainbow Centre, based in Fareham, is a registered charity working with both children and adults from across the South East. We help to improve motability, independence and emotional wellbeing of our participants living with neurological conditions. Using a special programme of learning called Conductive education, we help each of our participants create new neuro-pathways in the brain. 

The system trains undamaged parts of the brain to take control of motor functions previously managed by the areas of the brain which no longer work. Participants are viewed as facing a challenge of learning rather than needing treatment for a medical condition. The focus is not only on making movements and actions possible, but developing the whole person: the wish, desire and ability to be active.
