Carers Week 2021 takes place between 7th-13th June 2021 and is an annual event where we send Smiles to carers of ME sufferers in partnership with Bear Hugs. You can nominate a carer of an ME sufferer of any age from the UK to receive a Bear Hug Smile by completing our online nomination form. Click on the link below to access this form.

You can nominate an ME/CFS sufferer or carer of any age from the UK to receive a Smile by completing our Smile For ME nomination form. Repeat nominations are now considered after the timescale of 2 years however new nominations will always be prioritised.
What happens next?
Following completion of the nomination form Smile For ME will assess each application carefully before approving or declining according to our criteria. We will inform you of our decision if you have given us permission to do so. Smile For ME is run by people affected by ME so this may take several weeks. Those nominations that have been accepted will have Smiles sent out in due course but please be aware this can take a few months. If you would like an update or have any questions feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The personalised presents we call Smiles are individually chosen using the information supplied on the nomination form. They are then lovingly wrapped in blue kraft paper, decorated with blue and white twine and stamped with our logo before being posted to the recipient to brighten their day and make them smile.
