Support for Internet Explorer

It looks like you’re using Microsoft Internet Explorer as your web browser. This is now considered ‘end-of-life’, and Microsoft is withdrawing support for it because it uses outdated technology. This means that it will no longer receive important security updates and previous bugs will not be fixed.

This means that the risk and cost are placed on service providers to develop twice for modern browsers and again for Internet Explorer. As free, modern alternatives are available for most platforms it is difficult to justify spending public money on further development.

Please see the Withdrawal of support for Internet Explorer notice from NHS Digital for more information and guidance.

About SMILE (Self Motivation Inclusive Learning Empowerment) 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 wellbeing 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 wellbeing as this will go a long way to help their future development.
