Smile Group’s services have evolved organically to meet the needs of the parents we support. Originally set up by two mums with lived experience, Smile’s model developed on the powerful dynamic of peer 

support; of creating a trusted, welcoming environment led by facilitators with first-hand experience who are relatable, compassionate and trained to ensure parents feel safe and fully supported.

We know that there’s no ‘one size fits all’ approach to recovery from perinatal mental health challenges, so we’ve developed a number of ways to help expectant and new parents to access support in their local community, in order to complement the support that is provided by statutory services:

  • Our Peer Support Groups operate on a weekly basis out of venues in Macclesfield, Congleton and Sandbach
  • 1-1 Home Visits across the postcodes surrounding our Peer Support Groups are accessed via referral from a Healthcare Professional
  • Person-Centred Talk Therapy is available to parents via referral from our Group Facilitators
  • Monthly Family Sessions at Ruby’s Fund in Congleton are a lovely way of connecting families and are well attended by partners and siblings too
  • Many parents choose to engage with us via our virtual community and can follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
