Published 20th May 2020

A free online safety guide on 14 ways to be kind online.

Showing kindness online can mean so much to someone else. It is a choice we can all make that helps others, put people’s needs before our own and which can generate feelings of empathy and compassion. Small gestures can have a large impact and often one act of kindness can lead to more, making the world a happier and more positive place. That’s why we’ve created this guide to suggest a few simple ‘acts of kindness online’ that can benefit people’s mental health, support their wellbeing and encourage a more positive approach to engaging online.
