We are here to give a smile of hope by supporting children with life-limiting illnesses
Because every child deserves hope
Smile of Hope believes every child deserves a happy and healthy childhood, regardless of their background or circumstances.
We work to achieve our belief by providing educational, healthcare, and mentorship programs to children with life-limiting conditions or are in general need; and by partnering with local organisations and communities, together we create long-term solutions for their brighter future.
We offer a variety of programs and services to support children and families, including arts & craft programs, healthcare support, mentorship opportunities, and community outreach events.
Who we are
We are a local UK family and friends run charity who provide support and opportunities to children with life-limiting conditions or disadvantages. We identify problems within our community and establish grassroot projects to tackle them. Creating personal connections with the families and children we help is truly priceless to us.
What we do
With the help of our generous partners, donors and sponsors we provide life-changing support to children with chronic and or servere conditions. Additionally, we encourage and advance education and development through programmes like arts & crafts which are designed to be accessible to children with such conditions or in general need.
Smile of Hope started their conquest in 2005 supporting one child (Lili) and their hospice (Little Havens) through a charitable event called "I'm a Banker Get Me Out of Here" which successfully raised £1,000,0000
under the name Lili's Smile. However, with her success, our founder's retirement & rehabilitation, his resourceful connections in the finance industry, and his £1,000,000 charitable success from "I'm a Banker Get Me Out of Here"; Smile of Hope expanded in 2009 officially becoming the children's charity you know today.
Is to bring joy and relief in the form of smiles and hope to children with life-limiting conditions; and create all-inclusive opportunities which further development and education, bringing a sense of normalcy.
Our campaigns supporting children in need
Millions of children suffer with conditions no child should have to live with, and we provide support from financial aid and wish granting to life-saving treatment to give a smile of hope to those who are struggling.
To raise money to support the children in need and create a smile of hope within the local community, we regurally host low-priced events like raffles, sales, and quizes; while also hosting events for children, talking to schools to identify people in need, and engaging in community programs.
Arts & Crafts
Not all children have access to resources to pursue their passions, be that due to financial factors or motor skills; we run, sponsor, and support any iniatives that provide entertainment and development through arts & crafts for disadvantaged children.
