Delivering smiles to those who need it most.

Our aim is to help take people away from the negative aspects of life by providing free entertainment, activities  and services for the most vulnerable members of society.

By offering services such as hairdressing, holistic therapies and lifeskills we help bring people out of isolation, whilst gaining new skills and confidence. 

We work closely with the homeless, the elderly, youth clubs, mental health services and hospitals.

 

FREE ENTERTAINMENT, SERVICES AND ACTIVITIES

FOR THE ELDERLY, HOMELESS, YOUTH CLUBS AND MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES

£100 will pay for us to provide one of our services, and a hamper containing food, essentials and goodies to those in need. On average we will see 20-40 people per activity/visit. 

We also accept food and clothes donations for our weekly food handouts to rough sleepers and homeless shelters.

We want to help make a difference to peoples lives, wherever we can and however we can.

Our services help people who are lonely and isolated to feel like a valued member of the community whilst promoting social networks. Through activities that develop basic skills including communication, it is more likely that the people we help will find the confidence to access other beneficial services such as healthcare for example. 

FOOD HANDOUTS

The Smile Brigade also work closely wthin the local homless community. We have been doing food handouts to the homeless since December 2012, giving out food and donated clothes to people who are homeless and living in hostels or on the streets. 

WE HAVE NOW HANDED OUT OVER 2,000 MEALS TO PEOPLE SLEEPING ROUGH IN LONDON

 

KARAOKE + CUPCAKES NIGHT

 

 

Our aim is to spend time and lend a helping hand, building the confidence and boosting the morale of people who don't necessarily have that support network of friends and family around them. 

 

 

Being in hospital, living in a hostel or living in a care home can be a lonely and isolating place which is why we hope to make a difference.

If you have a talent, special skill or any other service which you are willing to offer then please get in contact.

 

It may be a small gesture but sometimes the smallest act of kindness can have the biggest impact on someone else's life!
