The Exeter Chiefs Foundation recently assisted Rainbow Living with a grant towards refurbishing the kitchen and utility room at their latest accommodation project, Rainbow House Four.

An Exeter-based volunteer-run charity, Rainbow Living provide accommodation for adults with learning and other disability. Over the last 14 years the charity has enjoyed success with its unique housing model, which enables adults with disability to live with their peers in specially adapted accommodation, designed to promote and encourage independent supported living.

Following sustained growth in demand for its services locally, Rainbow Living has continued to expand and there are now four Rainbow Houses in Devon, three in Exeter and one in Torquay.

Rainbow House Four in Exeter was purchased in September 2019; renovation work began immediately and the charity has worked hard to adapt the house with the future tenants’ individual and specific needs in mind.

The Exeter Chiefs Foundation grant was used to buy the kitchen and utility units, worktops and splashbacks, as well as the flooring and some accessories, such as the lights; every element of the kitchen was designed with the tenants’ individual needs in mind.

Rainbow Living’s Treasurer, Ruth Airdrie MBE, said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to the Exeter Chiefs Foundation for supporting our work and providing valuable funds towards renovation works at the house. We are grateful for their support in this project, which really will make a big difference to the lives of others for a long time to come.”
