Often, people like the message of Permission to Smile – and try to do their bit. But it can take a local catalyst to bring about real and lasting change.
The catalyst can be a church, a school, a GP surgery, a community group – any organsation with a stake in its local community and a desire to make a difference.
We have detailed guides on how to put on a local event with a Permission to Smile theme, invite residents from a wide area, facilitate people from the same street to get together and share ideas for how they can together start a Street Association. Please contact us for further information and advice.
We are also pleased to support networks in other towns and cities who would like to mount a Permission to Smile campaign and act as local catalysts to get it going.
