SMASH has transformed the lives of thousands of children and young people in the past 17 years. Our mission is to give them the chance to become everything they can be, sometimes when no one else believes they can.
We believe that “One Person can change a life”. We do this by offering young people a trained volunteer who will listen, befriend and mentor them.
The new Project Director’s goal will be to take our organisation forward and to make it sustainable, through a variety of means including fundraising events, community engagement and trust fund applications.
