Kindness Blog

This series of blogs is designed to spark ideas for building on the positive things that already happen. I’m always on the look-out for new writers, especially from under-represented groups who don’t always get a chance to have their voices heard. If you’ve got an idea for a blog? You can send us your Kindness blog idea.

Who’s in the room?

A few weeks ago I finally got round to watching the Channel 4 drama, It’s a Sin. It depicts the lives of a group of friends living in London in the 1980s as the HIV/AIDS crisis developed and impacted them directly. As you might expect from a series written by Russell T Davies, it was […]

Chimps at Monkey World

What makes a good story?

I’ve just spent half an hour watching a Facebook live video of the bachelor chimp group at Monkey World in Dorset. I couldn’t tear myself away! And although this morning’s session wasn’t billed as a story, it strikes me that actually the team at Monkey World do a fantastic job of story-telling. Across their social […]

Tips to articulate your kindness stories

At a time when charities are #NeverMoreNeeded, expressing the impact you have in the world is more important than ever. As a sector we need to show how we remain relevant in a rapidly-changing world. Your organisation is making the world kinder: how you express that will depend on your audiences. You need to identify […]

What if we believe ordinary people have the power to do extraordinary things

During 2021 I’m sharing stories of kindness. Speaking up about the things that people do to help others and make their day better. Each month I’m going to publish a ‘What If…’ blog to inspire us all to think about how we already make the world a kinder place and ideas for things we could […]
