Grant of the Month
Smile A While Health & Social Group
The Smile a While group will continue to provide transport for isolated adults in the Doncaster area to meet up once a week, make new friends, raise their spirits and share knowledge and information with each other.
Research shows that social networks have a positive influence on physical and mental health and well being, and the Smile a While group offers this chance to people, most of whom are unable to leave their homes without the valuable transport assistance provided by the funding from the 'I Love Doncaster' Fund.
Speakers come along to the group and share information and advice on various issues. Community Wardens and the Police, History Societies, Counsellors, craft tutors and the RSPB have all been recent visitors. For some people this is the only contact they get with others and from this they are able to pick up some information and new skills and possibly other avenues for them to explore in their own lives.
The 'I Love Doncaster' campaign is giving businesses the opportunity to make a real difference to the area by tackling local issues at a grassroots level.
