Our Health and Wellness programme is the latest programme to be set up for the Smile Brigade and
is being led by Taisie Grant.
It is designed to offer both clients and volunteers a selection of activities that aim to help support
their overall mental and physical health and will include everything from movement, mindfulness,
meditation, breathwork, nutrition and cooking tips.
Activities will be offered both on and offline to ensure that all clients are catered for.
Online activities will be offered as both live and pre-recorded sessions and over time, will form a
bank of classes and workshops that our clients and volunteers can access as and when they need.
Taisie is passionate about providing services to people to enable them to help build confidence and
offer toolkits to help live a more fulfilled and connected life.
