The EFL and its charity partner the British Red Cross will come together during Loneliness Awareness Week (12 – 18 June) to launch the Let’s Club Together Kindness Activity Pack, a new initiative for schools designed to help children and young people positively combat loneliness by focusing on kindness and togetherness.
The pack, which is free for schools to access, will contain a variety of activities that will encourage children to think about:
- How to look after yourself to become a stronger member of your team
- Social interaction with others and the importance of friendship and support
- Promoting positive experiences through kindness
Schools can sign up to receive the Kindness Activity Pack here.
Schools who register before 19 May will receive printed copies of the pack, while any who sign up after this date will receive it in digital format.
The Kindness Activity Pack continues to build on the work already delivered during the first year of the partnership which has also seen a new ticketing scheme piloted at EFL Clubs across the country. This new scheme is aimed at bringing people together with other local fans to enjoy a match; helping to reduce feelings of isolation and encourage new friendships and connections.
The EFL and the British Red Cross teamed up at the start of the 2022/23 season with the shared ambition of reducing isolation in communities around the country via the EFL and its 72 Clubs. With one in five people in the UK currently experiencing loneliness, the work of the partnership has never been more important.
The partnership has also raised significant funds to support the valuable work of the British Red Cross.
