The Rainbow Child Development Team

Welcome to The Rainbow Child Development Service, a multidisciplinary team which aims to support children with additional needs.


Children who are 0-5 years with additional needs who are referred to us will receive therapeutic and clinical care at the Rainbow Child Development Service.

We also run Specialty Children’s Consultant Clinics for children aged 0-16 years.

Our newly configured building has a sensory room, playroom, changing facilities, therapy rooms and clinic rooms. The unit also has a hoist linked to a weighing system. 

While here you may see a doctor, nurse, therapists, child development assistant or support staff who are specialists in child health and development.  On the day you will be seen by the most appropriate person depending on your child’s need but also receive ongoing support from the Child Development Service Team to continue to support your child’s health and development at home or in the community setting.

The service will also provide you with the right information and support to help you manage your child’s needs. 

From 6 February 2023, the Rainbow Child Development Service will be based in Rosemount Estate, off Huddersfield Road. The address of the new location is highlighted next to the map below.
