A conveyancing organisation has launched an initiative called Be Kind We Care to promote kindness and wellbeing within the property industry.
The initiative comes from the Conveyancing Foundation, working with Agents Together - the charity set up by Michael Bruce - and two other bodies, LawCare and the Mindstep Foundation.
Be Kind We Care aims to raise over £30,000 in support of charities providing mental health and welfare initiatives. It’s set up an online resource hub comprising guides, tips, podcasts, webinars and a newsletter.
Sarah Edmundson from Agents Together comments: “We are pleased to be involved in this initiative, which fits perfectly with our values as a foundation. We actively promote and support collaboration within Estate Agency and we are pleased to raise awareness and share useful resources with the wider property industry.
“Our founding pillars are promoting a healthy mind and a healthy business, and we hope by working closely with those involved in "Be Kind, We Care”, that we will help more individuals to not only manage but to prosper during these most unusual of times”.
“The inspiration behind this initiative derived in the workplace but applies to every situation in life. It is often easy when we are under pressure or feeling stressed to take frustrations out on others. A kind and friendly manner is usually more effective in achieving a required outcome” says Lloyd Davies of the Conveyancing Foundation.
“We hope that the property industry embraces this initiative to promote good mental health and wellbeing. We believe that this is a key issue for our industry, and we hope to make a positive change by highlighting the excellent resources available. Thank you in advance to those that support the Be Kind We Care initiative.”
