Friday Family Challenge: Show a little kindness

22 May 2020

Dion Dublin encourages families to create a list of positive acts to help others as part of Mental Health Awareness Week

Each week Premier League Primary Stars helps families keep their children educated and entertained with the Friday Family Challenge.

And in support of Mental Health Awareness Week, we are asking families to list acts of kindness to carry out over the next seven days.

Former Manchester United, Coventry City and Aston Villa striker Dion Dublin, who is now a television presenter, is supporting the campaign and explains in the video above the importance of being kind.

Kindness counts

Whether it is clapping for the National Health Service, carers and frontline staff on Thursday or reaching out to someone who may be isolated by phone, email or letter, there are plenty of small, simple acts of kindness.

To help you get started with your Kindness Goals challenge, we have created a free downloadable worksheet for you to use.

Don't worry if you cannot print this resource, simply grab some paper and a pen and get writing.

See: Primary Stars Be Kind Challenge 

If you are stuck for ideas and want some inspiration on acts of kindness, see how Premier League clubs are helping the NHS and their communities at the moment. You may find some useful tips for your own list. 

We want to hear how you are making a positive difference, which could help encourage others to follow suit.

Share your list of Kindness Goals with us on Twitter @PLCommunities #PLPrimaryStars or via email at

To support your own positive wellbeing, our Stay Well hub offers expert advice and top tips to help you stay well, stay strong and stay positive.
