We are no longer in operation 

We were a local community organisation, formed in response to hospitals having to stop in-person visits due to Covid-19.  We connected hundreds of patients to their loved ones, often during their last moments, across six London hospitals. And we provided devices to support a COVID-19 recovery trial. As shown on our tracker, London Rainbow delivered 90+phones and tablets (see map). Doctors, nurses, care and community workers lend them to patients in need at:
+ Barons Court Project (1)
+ Charing Cross Hospital (4)
+ Conrad Court Extra Care (3)
+ Elgin Close Extra Care (1)
+ Elmgrove House Extra Care (2)
+ Hammersmith Hospital (5)
+ King's College Hospital (13)
+ Lewisham Hospital (15)
+ Lewisham NHS Community Falls Service (1)
+ Lingham Court Extra Care (3)
+ Princess Royal Hospital - Bromley (4)
+ Queen Elizabeth Hospital - Woolwich (5)
+ St.Christopher's Hospice (17)
+ Third Age Project - Camden (4)
+ Turnberry Court Extra Care (3)

Devices were donated by members of the community. Volunteers (including the administrators above) assign them new IDs and SIM cards and deliver them ready to use. The costs incurred, most significantly monthly plans on mobile networks, were reclaimed by volunteers and transparently recorded here on Open Collective. Financial contributions from the community allow this to be completely free and admin-free for hospitals, care homes and community services that need our help.


I work with people who would benefit from a phone/tablet. Can you help?
