Kindness matters

This year our conference theme is kindness – its power to change ourselves, others and our situations. While we will be talking a lot about kindness in the services around us, too often, we overlook kindness towards ourselves and easily run out of it for others. As Ali Miller, from our development team says in her earlier blog, “the antidote to compassion fatigue is self-care“.

Here we’ve got together a selection of things you can potter through and maybe they will spark fresh enthusiasm for resting, creativity or help you see your situation in new ways.
