We gave Carers a few ideas for 'random acts of kindness' and asked is there one you'd like to commit to doing, or one you'd like to let someone else do for you, so you can also experience receiving kindness? these were our top results


Most popular was Reach out to someone who is having a tough time


Second most popular was Be an active listener when in the company of others


Joint third most popular was Look in the mirror and say 3 positive things about yourself and Be kind to people in the service industry

Do you have any quotes on this theme that you'd like to share?


Love doesn't always needs words and the smallest of gestures are often to most appreciated to show someone you care. Consistently doing something small rather than a grand one off gesture is often more heart felt and needed.

 

 

Treat everyone as you would like to be treated

 

 

Be kind! You don't know how many hours of Peppa Pig they've had to endure today!!

 

 

An act of kindness, however small, can make someones day.

 

 

When you hit rock bottom there's only one way up
