Information for families in Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole

SMILE Connect

SMILE is a Community Group which seeks to support Lone Parents and their families.

We give lone parents a chance to relax, develop friendships, receive information and find support, while the children have fun.

SMILE is a voluntary group run by Christians, but welcome to people of any faith. While we are not exclusive to Lone Parent families, however they are our main focus. There are events run for mothers and fathers including zumba, fishing and coffee mornings.
