‘Looking out for each other’ – a new campaign for young people
Written by West Yorkshire and Harrogate Health and Care Partnership
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic the ‘Looking out for our neighbours’ community inspired over 49,000 people to get involved by making a positive difference to their neighbours’ lives through acts of kindness. For 2021, the campaign has launched a new phase called ‘Looking out for each other’.
This campaign has been created to encourage young people aged 15-24 years to #SpreadTheKindness with their friends and peers.
September and October is a time of big changes and transitions that can affect young people’s mental health and wellbeing, which for many had been impacted by the pandemic.
‘Looking out for each other’ aims to encourage young people to check in and share positive messages with friends either online or in person, helping them support and reassure each other through a period that is often exciting but faced with fresh challenges.
How can you get involved…
We are looking for as many organisations as possible that work with young people in our region to ‘support the campaign’ and share the free print and digital materials with their community.
Every organisation that signs up will be sent free materials that include a ‘5 ways spread the kindness’ postcard and social media graphics that can be shared on instant messenger and social media to brighten up someone’s day.
Sign up to the campaign by completing this online form
