Smile is a respite facility for children with additional needs aged over 5 yrs. Parents or carers are welcome to stay for a coffee and a chat or take time out for themselves. The aim is to provide a friendly and fun environment for the children and to show Gods love in a practical way. Smile is a service that is open to families of any beliefs or none.
Smile generally runs on the first Saturday of the month, except when this clashes with school holidays. The dates for 2020 are as follows (NB. dates which have moved are shown with a * ):
**We are planning to go ahead with our June and July dates at this stage but will monitor developments and the availability of our usual venue and update parents regarding if this changes.
January and August are intentionally omitted as there is no Smile meeting during those months.
These dates may be subject to change, we will endeavour to inform parents or carers should changes be made. Any changes will also be announced on our news feed & events page.

What parents of children who attend Smile say:
We knew our son was well looked after, by kind, caring people who knew and understood his needs. It gave us a much needed break for a few hours.
I love Smile because it helps me to spend quality time with my daughter. I'm so impressed at how quickly my son has settled down and how much care the support worker gives him.
I think Smile is brilliant because my son has a great time while he is there and I can go and do stuff at home, which I might not otherwise get time for!
