United in Kind

'On 23rd September 2019 a new campaign launched across Essex called United in Kind. Please join the United in Kind

movement to tackle loneliness through kindness, creating connections in our community to overcome one of the biggest issue we face.


We are more connected than ever before, but we’re also experiencing loneliness. Let’s spread kindness together to tackle loneliness.

In Springfield we know you are ideally positioned to help us to do this! Kindness already exists in abundance, from the Youth Club,

Faith Groups to the Community Garden, and Afternoon Club and beyond.


Every small kind act can make a big difference to how connected someone feels to their community, and these connections

can build into something bigger to tackle loneliness. Whether it is a small act of kindness from one individual to another or

something you do as a community group, join us on 13 November for World Kindness Day and spread kindness across Essex.


The campaign is part of a bigger project to help alleviate loneliness across the county. Thanks to funding from Essex County Council

there are twelve United in Kind Coaches working across Essex, aiming to help reduce social isolation and loneliness at a community level.

Coaches will be connecting people and organisations, supporting new community initiatives, recruiting volunteers and also providing

a helping hand to existing groups where needed.  


We are looking to establish a network of Community Champions to help raise awareness and support us in overcoming loneliness.

 If you would like to get involved, get some help or find out more please contact Stella Scrivener stella.scrivener@ceessex.org.uk .'
