United in Kind is a social movement aiming to combat loneliness by spreading kindness and helping people to connect with their local community.

Each district has its own United in Kind Coach who is working to raise awareness of loneliness and isolation; recruiting Community Champions, developing ‘acts of kindness’ and providing communities with workshops and support to deliver their own activities.

The United in Kind Coach for Braintree is Jayne Laken – you can contact her using 07458 300903 or [email protected]
