Welcome to this the official website of the Rainbow Centre in Scarborough, North Yorkshire.

We are a social action project based in the heart of the town of Scarborough, North Yorkshire.  The project is a registered charity and was set up in 1997 to address issues faced by homeless people. The project now aims to help a range of community members  – including the homeless, families in crisis and individuals facing challenges due to a history of substance misuse poverty or returning from prison.
The project has a strong church base – originally set up by congregation members from St Mary’s and Holy Apostles Church – and is supported by a range of individuals, churches, charities, local business and government.


We always aim to provide relevant and practical support to those who need our help.  As a local charity we are very reliant on the support of individuals, families and organisations.

We hope that you find the information on our site informative and interesting.



Every year we publish an Impact Report outlining the work we have done and the changes we have helped make in local people’s lives.
