Oxfordshire Kindness Wave
Inspired by Laura Beveridge and Maxine Sloss who founded the Kindness Wave in Scotland, the Oxford team are passionate about supporting children, young people, foster carers and kinship carers with parcels containing Love, Kindness, Comfort and Hope.
The people behind the Oxfordshire Kindness Wave are artists, community workers and educators, some of whom are care-experienced and some who are experienced in championing young people facing adversity.
We want to support local Oxfordshire businesses by sourcing items for the parcels from them. Your support not only impacts positively on people who receive the parcels, but also local freelance makers and small businesses. Hooray!
To facilitate opportunities that can enrich and empower our children and young people supporting the arts and cultural projects.
“That every child has the right to rest and leisure, to engage in play and recreational activities appropriate to the age of the child and to participate freely in cultural life and the arts.”

Who are we?
We are a group of creatives that have many years of experience in working with children and young people; inclusion, play, educational and youth participation sectors. Our common belief is that all young people deserve the right to grow into adulthood with confidence, happy and engaged.
