The Caridon Foundation and Make me Smile Campaign

The Caridon Foundation is proud to team up with The SLAM (south London and Maudsley NHS) Make me Smile Campaign! 

The Maudsley Charity supports the work of South London and Maudsley’s Council of Governors by providing funds for small-scale projects. Since 2008 there has been a scheme in place for Members of the Trust to bid for funds of up to £750. A few months ago, CF applied for ‘A small pot of money aimed at projects that make people happy’!  Last week we heard that our bid, chosen from hundreds of entries, has been successful.

The email we received from the Board of Governors stated:

“Dear Caridon Foundation, I am pleased to tell you that your bid to Time to Smile was successful. We loved this bid – it moved at least one assessor to tears!”


We will be using this money to produce a Birthday Card, designed by our service users, that will be sent to every tenant on their birthday and once a month we will host a birthday ‘tea’.  We know that many of our clients are socially isolated and estranged from family and friends.  For several, this will be the only Birthday card they receive.
