Whether pupils play a game with a new friend or help someone with homework, it all helps create a better world

By taking part, you're also helping power Childline. We're there for all young people online, on the phone, anytime.

This October schools and nurseries up and down the country will be spreading kindness in their school communities. It’s so easy to take part. Pupils will pick up to nine kind acts using the worksheet we provide, and complete these acts on the first week of October (or another time which suits your school).

Kickstart kindness in your school this October, and watch it spread throughout the year.

When your school takes part in The Kindness Challenge, you’ll be able to submit your pupils' kindness act worksheets for the chance to win a Fonetti school subscription and have their story published in the NSPCC Kindness Challenge book on Fonetti, the read-aloud app.



"The Kindness Challenge was received so well across our school, including children, teachers and parents. It gave us the opportunity to make kindness the priority during our first term.

Kindness is so important and being able to promote it, using the NSPCC resources, was a great way to get the whole school talking about kindness and actively demonstrating it at playtimes and lunch times.

The children really got onboard with this initiative and were thrilled to be raising money at the same time."

Emily Loveridge, Assistant Head Teacher, St Josephs, Sheffield

Childline has been supporting children and young people for over 35 years. Our Childline service gives children and young people a voice when no one else is listening. Whatever problems or dangers they face, we give them somewhere to turn to for support when they need it.

Bullying, mental health, troubles at home – there are many reasons young people may need to call Childline.

As well as online 1-2-1 counselling, children and young people can also speak to Childline counsellors by sending an email from their Locker or by calling 0800 1111. They can also explore a range of other useful Childline tools and advice for all sorts of issues they may be dealing with.

"I’m so grateful to Childline for listening to me. I feel like I can talk about all the things I’ve been going through and can say exactly how I feel knowing that I won’t be judged. Childline have helped me loads! Thank you for all your support!"
Girl, aged 14
