Welcome

The Rainbow Centre provides support to vulnerable people in the community who are homeless, vulnerable and in crisis.

COVID 19 Pandemic July 2020

We continue to operate our services for emergency food parcels and essential provisions to vulnerable people in the community. Our reception phone line is open from 9am-2pm Monday to Friday to offer emergency support throughout the crisis. 

We are working closely with other agencies in the community and can make referrals to assist those who are struggling. 

Please get in touch if you need help!

The Rainbow Centre was originally established in 1997 to offer practical support to the Castle Ward in Scarborough – an area that had been designated as an Urban Priority Area.

The Centre now supports over 500 people per week and provides assistance on a diverse range of issues.

We are a food and clothing bank, giving out these items to people in need. There is a shower room, laundry, television lounge and a garden for people to enjoy in a safe, comfortable environment.

We are a Christian organisation, aiming to provide compassion, support and hope to all, regardless of age, gender or religion. We welcome anyone, and everyone is treated the same with a non-judgemental and empathic approach.

The Rainbow Centre is part of the mission of St Mary’s and Holy Apostles – an Anglican church based in Caste Ward Scarborough. For more information please click here…
