Smarties is a safe and welcoming learn and play environment for the youngest newly arrived children - aged 0-5.  The project bridges the sudden transition children experience with the move to a new country, through confidence building, teaching interactive skills and learning via play.

We run a summer playscheme for refugee children aged 5 - 10 and a youth project for those aged 11 - 14. It combines a programme of educational and fun activities.  Last August this included:

  • Visiting central London
  • Film making
  • Bowling
  • Quilombo - Brazilian martial arts
  • Arts and crafts sessions

They are planned and overseen by qualified childcare professionals, youth workers and volunteers.
