We run Kindness Workshops in primary schools all over the UK. Our Workshops aim to spread kindness and empower children by helping them to realise that the little choices they make every day have the power to change people’s lives, and improve their own physical and mental health at the same time. You can find more  below or download our Kindness Workshop Brochure.

PLEASE NOTE: As well as our face-to-face workshops, we are also running virtual kindness workshops at the moment. For more details on those, please click here 


What Happens in a Kindness Workshop?

 1. A fun presentation

In the first part of our Kindness Workshop, we give a lively, interactive presentation covering:
– What kindness is and the impact it has on ourselves, our classroom, our community and the world.
– The science of kindness, including the changes it triggers in our minds and bodies.
– Case studies from 52 Lives showing the life-changing difference kindness has made to real people around the world.

2. Taking action

In the second half of our workshop, we put the theory into action. We share the story of a real child in need of kindness and work with the children during the session to come up with ways to help that child. It could be making cards, sending video messages of support…or anything else they come up with. Read more about the children we’ve helped in past workshops here .

3. Post-workshop

Your involvement with the School of Kindness doesn’t have to end when the workshop does. We encourage schools to stay engaged with us, including presenting an annual Outstanding Kindness Award to a child in their school (provided by 52 Lives), reinforcing and building on the workshop using our lesson plans, or getting involved in any of our other initiatives. You will also have the opportunity to become a ‘Kind School’ by signing our pledge, which will enable you to use the ‘Kind School’ logo.

These excellent workshops are ideal for all schools that are looking to put kindness at the heart of their ethos by teaching the children about it explicitly. This is such an important aspect of education, and 52 Lives are experts at teaching it.
