As we continue our way through the month of October,  we get the opportunity to marvel at the ways that nature transforms itself from  summer to winter.   The Action for Happiness Calendar has a positive task to fulfill each day. 

It is important that we use words of encouragement as children grow, as they will hopefully stay with them for a long time. 

You are loved

 I have faith in you

You are creative

You are capable

You are deserving

You are strong

I'm listening

Your choices matter

You make a difference



This month, we're encouraging you to carry out small acts of kindness.  This has been another difficult year of uncertainty and ups and downs for many of us. Kindness is contagious, and helping others has been proven to make us feel better too!


Let's try to focus on being generous with our time and attention rather than money - it's free and better for everyone, as well as our planet!

Saying #HelloYellow on 8 Oct for World Mental health Day

We want to help you make your #HelloYellow day as big and bright as possible, so together we can show young people they're not alone with their mental health.
