SMILE is a low cost, low impact and gentle exercise concept developed by Life Leisure. The programme provides fun, engaging and adaptable exercise and physical activity sessions for older adults and those with long term health conditions or disabilities to help improve physical and mental health and wellbeing.

Whether an individual can only take part sitting on a chair or they feel comfortable enough to stand up and exercise – we believe the SMILE programme offers alternatives that are beneficial for everyone and taking part will improve a participant's quality of life. And all for only £3 a session!

Please note: Signpost run our own SMILE session at 1.30pm on Wednesday afternoons at the Heaton Centre. This is a small friendly group that enjoy exercising together and like to have a brew and a chat at the end. All welcome, even if you've never been before! This particular session is FREE to carers and just £3 for non-carers with carers welcome to bring the person they care for. Give us a ring on 0161 442 0442 if you'd like any more information about this session.
