Spread a Smile brings joy and laughter to and enhances the well-being of seriously and terminally ill children and their families during intensive treatment and extended hospital stays.  Every year we spread smiles and laughter to thousands of hospitalised children and teenagers and their families through hospital entertainment, family outings & events, art activities and digital services including Smile TV and Smile Spaces.  We know that our impact is far greater than a smile as we strive to make a real and positive difference to young lives at the most challenging of times.
