In challenging times, Kindness UK is urging people to use kindness to bind together their communities and to get to know their neighbours.
70% of people don’t know their neighbour’s names
94% of people feel there is no ‘community spirit’ in their neighbourhood
51% of Brits wouldn’t ask their neighbours for help

“At a time of year when the elderly, isolated and ill are already particularly vulnerable, everyone urgently needs to start working together as a community and look out for their neighbours” said David Jamilly, founder of Kindness UK. “Particularly in these dark economic times it could literally be a question of life of death.”
