Welcome to Smile Support & Care
We are a registered, regional charity providing much needed full and part-time support to families with disabled children and young adults up to and beyond the age of 25, across Hampshire and West Sussex.
Whether it be providing respite care for several hours per week for a child with a mild form of autism, through to 24-hour care for those suffering severe life-limiting conditions, our highly trained staff are available to families whenever, and wherever, they need help.
We strive to help children reach their full potential. Our support also extends to family and carers, ensuring they receive the support they need and assistance in coping with the pressures of everyday life. Most of all, we make it possible for families to enjoy quality time together.
We are also pleased to announce that building work on the new Respite Care Centre is now complete and we are just entering the final stages of furnishing and equipping the building with specialist equipment. The new centre is purpose-built to accommodate two family apartments, plus eight specially-equipped bedrooms eith en-suite bathrooms where children and young adults with severe disabilities can stay either with their families or carers. The site is located on the outskirts of Waterlooville and will provide both residential care as well as day care/drop-in facilities for local families. There will be a cafe, play and social areas and the building will retain a hotel-like feel creating a safe and relaxed atmosphere for children and their families.
We urgently need your help now with raising funds to support the Centre's running costs. Please contact our fundraising team now if you can help in any way - 02380 613084. Your help is invaluable and we are extremely grateful for all the generous donations that have helped to make this dream a reality. Text SMIL20 £5, £10, £20 or your chosen amount to 70070.
