Compassion is one of our core values, and, as such, it’s central to everything we do.
We look for people who demonstrate compassion in our recruitment workshop, and then we embed compassionate thinking and practice in our training and coaching; so we can build more compassion into the way we work in our communities.
This month we’re being supported to develop compassion further with the help of Shannon Weber, founder of loveyou2.org and creator of ‘Love Notes’; as well as our partners at Making Space. And, because we’re sharing what we’re doing, you can be part of it too!
We’ll be building up to a workshop on compassion with Collaborate Out Loud and Shannon Weber in Bolton on 12 July, which you can sign up for on Eventbrite.
The 30 Day Love Note Challenge
For 30 days over June and July, we are committing to take an action a day from Shannon’s 30 Day Love Note Challenge calendar. These are all ways to express gratitude and spread joy amongst our own communities, and ultimately create 30 days of special moments for the people who receive them (and those of us who give them, too!).
What we love about this challenge is its simplicity and its immediacy. In the first couple of days, people who have received a note have already been expressing their joy and gratitude. As an organisation this serves as an effective reminder of why sharing your genuine appreciation for something somebody has done for you is a generous and compassionate act.
