Carolines Rainbow Foundation
Caroline's Rainbow Foundation is a registered UK charity working to raise awareness of the importance of safe travel, whether 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.
Safer Travel App
2012 we celebrated our 10 year anniversary, to keep up with the busy lives of travellers we created a Travel Safety App for iPhone and Android hand held devices. The App is available free to download and use.
The Safer Travel App offers specific travel and safety information for destinations around the globe. Giving travel safety tips, information about the country or city, highlights and attractions, useful and emergency phone numbers, helpful website links that travellers might need, local and annual events in the area, places to go and avoid, season to travel, interactive maps, current population, ethnic groups and languages spoken, Local news, political situation and currency exchange rates.
An important part of CRF’s work is to provide educational materials and support teachers in raising awareness about travelling safely.
Our inspiring presentations are offered to Schools, Colleges and Universities. The program is run by Caroline’s brother, Richard Stuttle, who has travelled extensively, he tailored a selection of courses to educate people about the benefits and pitfalls of world travel. Richard trained a team of experienced travellers to deliver their own unique versions of the presentations. They all have a wide knowledge of different countries and cultures and are delighted to share their stories and experiences to others considering a gap year or travelling adventure.
