The Radical Kindness Elevenses Webinar Series

At a time when many of us are feeling starved of connection, isolated and apprehensive about the future, we all need stories that remind us of just how amazing people can be in a crisis. Which is why Belong are dedicating half an hour every week at 11 am each Tuesday to hear from people who are doing acts of radical kindness – ‘kindness that reaches across difference’. So take a break, bring yourself and a cuppa and join us for our Radical Kindness Elevenses.

So, boil the kettle, make that cuppa, grab a biscuit and join us!

Tuesday 12th January

In February of last year the district of Calderdale experienced severe flooding resulting in major damage to homes and businesses. In a remarkable show of resilience and kindness people mobilised across the area to support those worst affected. And then the pandemic arrived – and communities working hand in hand with local services sprang into action again.

Out of this situation came extraordinary stories of radical kindness, resilience and courage. For example,  a scheme to keep taxi drivers safe during the pandemic, a community food sharing programme set up in a local mosque.

For the first Radical Kindness Elevenses webinar of 2021 our host Chrissie will be joined by Sail Suleman from Calderdale Council and guests to hear about those who practiced radical kindness to help their fellow residents during these tough times.
