The Rainbow Club is a lifeline to families, children, young teens and adults living with Autism. We support their needs in coping with the world and challenges they face on a daily basis.
Our aim is to help, support and teach people about Autism, how to live every day with it, and the challenges it brings to the child and family. We understand what’s needed to cope with the diagnoses and how to get support from each other. We teach children and young people to communicate, make new friends, be part of a group, learn new skills, and how to be themselves, proudly accepting Autism, and finding their own place in the world.

Rainbow Club Cork relies on the generosity of our amazing community of supporters and we are always blown away by the commitment people make to support our vital work.
There are lots of ways you can help make a difference; by organising a fundraiser, volunteering at one of our events, helping connect us to new opportunities, or donating directly.
The Cottage Community Café run by Rainbow Club will support us well into the future. It has brought the local community and groups together with Rainbow Club families, promoting inclusion for our children to learn from the community and for the community to learn about our children and teens.
We have hard-working part-time staff and Club parents, all trained in HACCP and food safety, in here each week volunteering their time to support the café and most importantly their children who will benefit from the café in their future.
