Smile Connect - the Sussex social networking website for everyone over 50 that helps you connect and make friends with people who share your interests.
Smile Connect was built with one main aim; to prevent people suffering from loneliness and isolation.
Smile Connect offers a digital platform for people aged over 50, that lets them connect with others who enjoy the same pastimes. By forming online and face to face friendships, users can build healthy, active and fulfilling social lives.
We encourage use by people who may feel excluded by other websites because they find them difficult to read due to issues with compromised eyesight. Not every website is built with these users' needs in mind. We try to use large, easy to read fonts and plain coloured backgrounds.
We are also aware that not everyone is familiar with using the internet. Smile Connect could be the first website they have ever used, therefore we try to make it user friendly, aim to use clear language and refrain from using jargon or internet slang.
We like to receive feedback. We react to it, making changes to suit the needs of our users. We may not always get things right straight away but we do constantly review Smile Connect, to ensure our community get the best experience.
Smile Connect is an organic website and we continue to make changes to make our website as easy to use as possible. We also add features that we believe our users may find useful. If there is anything that you feel we could improve upon, we are always happen to listen.
