The Smile Sharing Philosophy
The Smile Sharing Philosophy is about combining hands-on activities, public involvement, academic dialogue and effective political and corporate engagement. We do this a number of ways:
By creating a national network of community minded individuals and activists who share the Smile Sharing vision. We recognise the people living in these communities best understand the social needs of their communities through our membership people will receive the information, support and resources they need to make a difference in their local communities
Events bring people together and can encourage inclusiveness and community cohesion we believe events are an important tool to encourage community action through local people taking positive action in their neighbourhoods, by rewarding the efforts of volunteers and community activist and by promoting community spirit.
Campaigning raises awareness of the Smile Sharing philosophy by launching new initiatives yearly Smile Sharing aims to target community builders and support their activities.
