Best Community Project!

SELFA received an award for ‘Best Community Project’ at the North Yorkshire Community Awards this October. The award was for ‘The SMILE Project’ which is a intergenerational project that runs as part of our term-time provision.

The SMILE Project meet once a week and visit Ashfield, a local care home in Skipton, where the children take part in fun activities with the residents. At the moment the children taking part are aged 4-7 years but, once the current 12-week programme has finished, we hope to continue the project with some of our older children and teenagers.
