Welcome to Rainbow Voices
Rainbow Voices is a project of hope. In the first phase, we will ‘bring back the rainbow’ into our local community by encouraging everyone to fill their windows with colourful paper crafts and sending hundreds of handmade cards with messages of hope to those who need it most.
Phase 3: Sunderland Coalfields
Thanks to funding from Sunderland City Council, the project will also be expanding to specific parts of the Coalfield Area of Sunderland.
We look forward to announcing details in due course.
In the summer we will be going on tour with in-person community events in and around Durham City & Houghton-le-Spring to help us all re-connect after lockdown. There will be family-friendly crafts & activities, stalls and of course - singing!

We would love to offer more opportunities for people to get their envelopes, and for community groups to get involved. Please help us connect with all the groups, organisations & businesses in your village including clubs, societies and groups, churches and community centres, pubs, cafes and restaurants, GP surgeries, chemists, post offices, shops, hair & beauty salons, businesses - who can all take part in this project as a GROUP, SPACE, or both.
A GROUP can get involved by:
Distributing envelopes to their members | Adopting a window to decorate | Volunteering to help to deliver to vulnerable people in our community
Groups might include a club, society, church or charity - for example the local Brownies or WI.
A SPACE can get involved by:
Displaying posters & flyers | Being a collection point (providing a small space to display an A4 sized box) | Decorating window spaces | Allowing a group to adopt a window & decorate it for you
Spaces might include shops, pubs, GP surgeries or village halls.
