To continue spreading smiles. Spread a Smile has now introduced Smile Spaces to our offering. We’re always very proud to deliver a personal touch to all our visits, and that’s now continuing digitally! At a prearranged time, we can bring together a child and their parent in hospital, their family at home and one of our fantastic entertainers in their own home for a bespoke ‘virtual visit’.

To arrange a virtual visit or your own personal message for your child, please email

Whilst our visits have been suspended, the Spread a Smile team has been working hard to ensure we can continue spreading smiles.

We’re very excited to be launching Smile TV today, bringing entertainment to children and teenagers in hospital. Our wonderful team of entertainers has created some great content for Smile TV, and will continue to add films and clips so please do keep checking back.

Together with our hospital partners, earlier this week we took the decision to temporarily pause our hospital visits, theatre trips and parties. The health and wellbeing of our children, teenagers and their families in hospital is our top priority and we don’t want to place anyone at undue risk during this time.

Suspending visits doesn’t mean suspending spreading smiles, and we’re now looking at ways to continue providing Spread a Smile entertainment to children and teenagers in hospital through virtual means.

Please keep checking this website for updates on our new service, which will be an exciting new way for us to spread smiles.
