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.

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.

Smile Parent

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.

Smile Parent

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!
