When you need a friendly face

Smile is a small group of students who help support people who feel like they need someone to chat to. They are an inclusive group of people with strengths in different topics, but all know that they want to help others. They don’t judge and always respect everyone’s point of view.

As a group, they work closely with Pride and Digital Leaders to expand their knowledge on how to help and support different types of people.

Smile students have installed a box at each college reception where students can post a note if they feel they would like some help and support, or even if they just have a question.

Alternatively, students could chat to Smile members around the academy; they can be easily identified by the blue smiley face badges on their lapels.
