Summer of kindness calendar

Find out how children and young people can take part in our summer of kindness. 

Children talking to their dad about the kindness calendar

The summer holidays are fast approaching and things might look a little different this year in light of COVID-19.  

To support children and young people and to help keep them entertained we are continuing with our kindness calendar.  New, quick activities will be emailed to you on a weekly basis. The activities will encourage simple acts of kindness, build resilience and include topics like mental wellbeing, loneliness and help children and young prepare for the return to school. Activities are perfect for 7 to 18 year olds, but some might be suitable for younger learners.
