Acts of kindness and the difference they can make

Working in partnership we’ve created a video that highlights the ways people can support each other when facing dying, caring and grief.

Alongside colleagues from Suffolk County Council and Offshoot Films, St Nicholas Hospice Care’s Hospice Neighbours Team has created a video showing the importance of neighbourliness and how small acts of kindness really can make a difference.
