The Bringing Back a Smile Charity was set up to concentrate on helping Adults and children with life threatening illnesses.

The charities aim is to bring families together away from gruelling treatments to enjoy quality time together on breaks away home and abroad and also days out with loved ones to help take the stress away in difficult times. Bringing Back A Smile concentrates on the families and siblings as a whole when loved ones are in difficult circumstances.

Although we are a relatively small charity we do try and accommodate as many families as we can and with the help of our sponsors and supporters we will continue to do as best we can to make a difference in our communities.
