Home > News > Acts of Kindness

We’re on a search for people and groups who have shown kindness to others, people who inspire us, who give us hope that by coming together we can make a difference. We would like to hear their story, so we can capture them on our new website and inspire others.

We know that bad things happen, they are the stories we hear all the time. But we also know that in our region, there are hundreds of acts of kindness for others that happen every day. Stories of people who bring us hope, who inspire us. We think these stories need to be told.

We are the Northumbria Conflict Resolution Network. We work to prevent, reduce and resolve destructive conflict and to support those doing this work. We think it’s important to provide a way where people can share their experiences and knowledge about resolving conflict, overcoming difference and building stronger communities.

We are in the process of updating our website. We would like it to be full of stories that bring hope to others and provide inspiration about how it’s possible to make a difference in our communities.

We are looking for stories of;

  • People working together, not for their own benefit, but to help others in need.
  • People working to build understanding between people, offer friendship and resolve conflict.
  • People who show us the power of kindness.
  • People who bring us hope.

We would love to hear from you if you have a story to share! Join us in our mission to make sure that 2017 is a year where we celebrate and be thankful for what is good in our community.

We will come to you at a time that fits with your busy life, get you to tell us about your story of kindness (we are only asking for 20-30 minutes of your time), then write it up and put it on the website. Become a member of our Gallery of #HumanKIND!
