"It's good. I like cooking dinner and looking after my own room. I've got more independence. I'm doing more around the house, although I don't really like housework. Mum and dad used to do a lot for me." – Dale

Katy Lee from The Exeter: "I will attempt a variety of fund raising events for Rainbow Living because of how wonderful the adults they help are. As a local business, we want to raise as much money as possible for Rainbow Living's third house; it's rewarding to know that we're helping such a great local charity."
Colin Richman, Founder and Director of Rx-info: "Rainbow Living is an exemplary charity, and one that I am very proud to support. The model of care and accommodation that they have developed is not only great for the adults and their families, it is a self-sufficient model that could be replicated anywhere in the UK. I'm pleased that I can support them in their journey to buying their third property."
Derek Hathaway from Teign Valley Golf Club: "We are proud to be able to support such a fantastic local cause and delighted to have helped raise money for Rainbow Living's third house; we wish the charity every success in the future."
