Weekly News - 9th September 2020

Welcome to the Sunshine and Smiles weekly newsletter! This is where you will find all our upcoming events and news.

Given the government guidance regarding social distancing we have temporarily suspended all our groups, face to face sessions, activities and closed 21 Co. Shop & Café.

We are hoping to re-open 21 Co. soon but sessions will remain online for the moment.

Some of our sessions are available online. Please see the events calendar on our website to see what's on. 

We are still available by telephone and email for advice, support and signposting – please don’t hesitate to get in touch at any time:
