"I feel like I belong"
What we do
Packed with Smiles provide children in our local community with new uniform parcels and other school essentials, to ensure that they can fully participate in school.
Our dream is that all children are given the opportunity to attend school feeling equal, confident and ready to create their own future.
The impact on a child not having the correct or properly fitting school uniform, has been directly linked to self-esteem, behaviour, learning and bullying. Supporting families facing financial hardship and difficulty, through our school uniform parcels, has proven not only to positively contribute towards a child’s schooling experience but also increase engagement levels between schools and parents too.
Packed with Smiles aims to level the playing field and support self confidence in young people because we value their wellbeing and the huge potential they hold…
"...you've put so much love into these parcels... My son's are properly attired. Thank you for helping us believe that people like yourselves do exist still. Forever thankful…”
“The welfare of our children underpins everything we do here and having PWS by our side really does make a difference to the lives of our not so fortunate families..."
"...so grateful, money has been tight and one less thing to worry about...We are overwhelmed by the kindness of your charity. Thank you so much.”
"Think in love, act in kindness"
