We are delighted to inform you that Daisy Inclusive UK have been successful in obtaining 3 years funding through The Big Lottery Community Fund to support our SMILE Initiative.
The SMILE initiative which stands for Self-Motivation, Inclusive Learning and Enrichment will be the catalyst to make a real difference in helping disabled and vulnerable people (16+) to live a more fulfilled and independent life.
The SMILE initiative will focus on 3 key links: – self motivation, independent living/ inclusive learning and enrichment with each link being designed to improve the future prospects, skills and health and well-being of the participants involved.
Self-Motivation – Encouraging participants to be happy in their own skin and with who they are. We will support individuals to improve their confidence and self-esteem, make friends and feel empowered to take ownership in their lives.
Independent Living/Inclusive Learning – Supporting individuals to reach their true potential. Working with our Independent Living Co-ordinator and Inclusive Development Officer participants will gain life skills, independence, qualifications, employability training and work experience that will help them on their journey to reach their aspirations and targets.
Enrichment – Enrichment activities including sports and physical activity, health and well-being and music will be the catalyst to helping participants to feel fit in body and fit in mind. We want to ensure that participants also have the opportunity to improve their health and well-being as this will go a long way to help their future development.
If you know of anyone who would be interested and meet the criteria for this amazing initiative or you would like further information please do not hesitate to contact me on 0151 261 0309 or firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be holding an official launch on Wednesday 12th February 2020 – 11am to 3pm, where you can come along and find out more about the SMILE initiative.
