Small Acts of Kindness
Small Acts of Kindness is a fully volunteer-run social enterprise working to combat poverty, loneliness and isolation among older people in Hertfordshire. The organisation’s core products are winter and Christmas gift bags that contain warm blankets, hats, socks and food items such as hot drinks and soups. The sourcing and distribution of gift bags is run via a network of 40 local partners. Small Acts of Kindness then uses its contact with beneficiaries to gain information that enable it to thoughtfully refer them to partner organisations, such as those that offer local social activities for the elderly. Funding from The Fore will enable the founder to become a full-time employee, enabling her to focus on raising revenue and driving growth in both reach and scope.
