Carolines Rainbow Foundation
Caroline's Rainbow Foundation is a registered UK charity working to raise awareness of the importance of safe travel to young people, whether they are going abroad for independent travel, gap year placements, organised tours or simply thinking about visiting a different country.
CRF was founded after the tragic death of Caroline Stuttle in 2002 in Bundaberg, Australia whilst travelling on her gap year. Aimed at young travellers, CRF works with the education sector, The Foreign Office and other organisations, trusts and charities to provide easily accessible and helpful information about safe travel. In particular the charity provides information about personal safety abroad and encourages young people to recognise and prioritise life’s values wherever they may be in the world.
Caroline’s Rainbow Foundation is involved with lots of exciting current projects to raise awareness of travel safety to the next generation who are about to depart and explore the wonders of our world. CRF’s website has an interactive “Global Guide” that gives specific information for individual destinations, highlighting tips for travelling in the area. Important telephone numbers, website addresses and map of the area. It also gives top safety tips, scams to be aware of and common crimes.
The aim is to raise awareness and knowledge of the destination before the traveller arrives. All content is generated by people who have travelled and physically been to the country, city or town to ensure the information is as specific and accurate as possible.
We promote Travel Safety Awareness and encourage travellers to follow their dreams, experience the amazing world in which we live with safety in mind, sharing their life changing expereicnes with the rest of the world. We support the next generation of students who are inspired to explore and new cultures and horizons.
