A smile really can brighten your day – and together our SMILES are brightening, changing – and even saving people's lives all over the UK and Republic of Ireland.
Since it launched in 1997, our charitable foundation SMILES (Slimmer's Making It a Little Easier for Someone) has raised over £4.5 million for worthwhile causes including:
- Marie Curie Cancer Care
- Breakthrough Breast Cancer
- Children in Need
- ISPCC (Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children)
Our charity partners
Since the partnerships began in January 2013, Slimming World has raised an incredible £2.4 million for Cancer Research UK and the Marie Keating Foundation in the Republic of Ireland.
Cancer Research UK is the world's leading charity, dedicated to beating cancer through research, and the Marie Keating Foundation is a leading voice in cancer awareness and information in Ireland.
Cancer touches the lives of so many of us, and research shows that many types of cancer are more common in people who are overweight or obese, making these charities natural partners for Slimming World.
The life-saving work carried out by these charities would not be possible without the remarkable generosity of supporters like our members, Consultants and Head Office staff. Together, through our partnerships, Slimming World can play a part in helping to find more cures, improve treatments and outcomes, understand the causes of cancer and provide people with information to help them avoid the disease.
The return of a long-standing partner
In 2015 we will also support former charity partner, the NSPCC (National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children). In the past we've raised over £1.3 million for the charity which means they've been able to offer incredible support to children who had nobody else to protect them. The work that the NSPCC do – their direct services, policy work and campaigning – is pioneering. Slimming World's passion, loyalty and kindness will assist the charity in taking extraordinary steps each and every day to protect thousands of children from harm and cruelty.
