Brighton business man Fash Ghiaci found his career taking an unexpected turn after he sold his chartered accountancy practice in 2007. After 22 years of maximising business opportunities he turned his attention to health and well-being. His interest in this subject was inspired by his family life and resulted in the creation of Smile2Live in 2010. A well-being centre located in Davigdor Road, Hove, Smile2Live has the motto ‘The place where you can change your mind’.
- Social integration
- Physical and mental well-being
“After two years of running Happy Cell, many lessons have been learnt by the team; the most significant of which is that some people need to be supported to stay engaged with their well-being programme.”
With this in mind, the charity Smile2Live was registered to fund and create the supported space needed to help individuals achieve goals such as re-entering employment or recovering from domestic abuse. The busy programme of health and social activities on offer inside Happy Cell’s walls encourages a new type of supported living and the building’s studios, relaxation room and kitchen are all cheerfully decorated and designed with well-being in mind.
Fash is relishing bringing the same dedication he applied to the business world to this project. He said: “This is an initiative which will create huge benefits for the community and the under-privileged.”
