Kindness Counts 2024

  • In your school!

Celebrate World Kindness Day with us on 13th November 2024!

Whether it is a kind word, a warm hug, or joining like-minded people in a movement for change, children want something that is empowering, positive and uplifting, that shows them simple ways in which they can make a difference.

That’s where Kindness Counts comes in!

We want to teach pupils how little acts of kindness in the community make a big difference and we'd love your school to be involved!


Join the Kindness Movement

Kindness Counts is a free campaign designed to promote the values of kindness and compassion in your classroom through engaging resources tailored to different age groups.

Simply, sign your school up and your school will receive:

  • Tailored educational resources: Lesson plans, age-based worksheets, and engaging activities focused on kindness and compassion.
  • Alignment with curriculum: These resources directly address personal development, mutual understanding and thinking skills, and personal capabilities framework.


(Terms and conditions apply on this offer. Full details available via the link )


In return, all we ask is that your school host a fundraising activity on or around World Kindness Day - to help support local babies, children and adults who depend on our specialist care.
