Happy Smiles Training CIC
Happy Smiles Training CIC is an award-winning social enterprise led by disabled people.
The charity has so far provided training for over 12,500 people to help businesses, schools, and community groups become more inclusive. All training is conducted by volunteers with lived experience of disability. 90% go on to long-term employment or volunteering afterwards, and 95% of training participants learn something new that positively changes how they view disabilities.
Happy Smiles will use The Fore’s funding to hire a new Programme Coordinator. With this person in post, they will have the capacity to win more contracts, create more revenue, and eventually franchise their model.
