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.

The first series of Radical Kindness Elevenses is running every Tuesday for three weeks from 17th November until 1st December at 11 am. We promise no slides, no papers, just inspiring uplifting stories of good people doing good things to forge stronger social connections across difference in their neighbourhoods.

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

Events Overview

Dr Shehla Khalid, Evaluation and Project Improvement Officer, Stronger Communities Together, Bradford Council for Everyone (Bradford Council) will be joined by Cain Lewis of the Local Government’s Stronger Communities Team to discuss Radical Kindness in Bradford. Cain set up a website dedicated to sharing acts of kindness in his area and has been spreading joy throughout the pandemic by dressing himself and his three year old son, Leo in fancy dress and taking trips around the town to wave at other children and raise their spirits. Cain and Leo will be sharing this joy with us on the webinar with Cain dressing as a bumblebee and Leo as Spider-Man.
