The Rainbow Centre came into being in 1996 to offer practical support to Castle Ward in Scarborough – an area that had been designated as an Urban Priority Area.
The Centre now supports well over 400 people per week and is the focus of a lot of community action and practical witness.
Help and support is provided on a whole range of issues, including accommodation, benefits, job availability, medical needs, physical and sexual abuse, rehabilitation, practical help (bedding, furniture, clothes, blankets for rough sleepers etc. etc.), or any number of diverse and varied problems.  There is a shower room, laundry, television lounge and community cafe.
Emergency clothing and food parcels are available for those in crisis.


The Centre aims to support, uplift and encourage all who need help within Castle Ward, and further afield, and try to be ‘Jesus at work’ in the community.
We are open Monday to Friday from 8.30am onwards.
