  • Be Kind, Reach Out, and Coorie In

    Created: 16/11/2020

    Community Action Response, led by Eden Project Communities and supported by the National Lottery, is launching a new campaign, Be Kind, Reach Out, and Coorie in, to encourage communities to stay kind and stay well this winter.

    As winter approaches our community groups and neighbours become even more of a lifeline for thousands of peoples who rely on help with food, fuel, shelter and loneliness. People will be struggling with mental health and if you’re feeling low, anxious or stressed just talking to your friends and family can help. Simple things can make a big difference, so don’t be afraid to reach out. 

    As part of the campaign, Community Action Response is suggesting practical ways to show kindness in your community. As the temperature drops and pavements and driveways get icy and you’re out salting your drive, why not help your neighbours stay steady of their feet and sprinkle some theirs too? If you know your neighbour is struggling keeping warm, perhaps you could deliver a flask of tea - or if time indoors has brought out your crafty side, draft snakes are a great way to help with cold spots at windows and under doors.
