Little Moments B.I.G. Smiles

We foster mental wellbeing through belonging to realise our vision of happier, healthier, kinder lives.

What is B.I.G.?

B.I.G. stands for ‘Build In Good’. It’s our unique approach to encourage every person that we meet to think about how they can build a little kindness, neighbourliness and 'good' into their lives.

1 in 5 adults say that they often feel lonely, lack companionship, feel left out, or isolated from others* so we are on a mission to curate spaces that welcome the entire community and break down the barriers that keep us away from one another.
