Working with Harlow Seniors to reduce Loneliness and Social Isolation.  Rainbow’s Community Builder programme enables older residents in Harlow to identify issues that are affecting their lives and, with support, bring their ideas to life, get more involved in their community and solve their own problems. In order to tackle the issue of increased loneliness and isolation, we support older residents to create and maintain weekly social and activity hubs, and we organise special outings and events.


Harlow Healing Rooms

Harlow Healing Rooms is a project jointly organised by 3 Harlow Churches –    St Mary’s Churchgate Street, Freshwaters Christian Fellowship, and Gateway. All of the team come from these and other Harlow Churches, they have been trained and are accountable to the leaders of the Team.  Please click the heading for more info.
