New booklet available now!

Following our popular ‘The Little Book of Brighter Days’, we’re delighted to introduce our next little booklet in the series.

As part of Breathing Space’s ‘You Matter, We Care’ campaign, our new booklet is all about promoting kindness for better mental wellbeing.

‘The Little Book of Caring Ways’ explores the importance of maintaining good relationships and connections with others and how compassion, appreciation, random acts of kindness and empowerment can help us on this journey.

The booklet highlights the abundance of kindess in Scotland, and how kindness and support can help build resilience and get us through these challenging times.

Currently available as an e-version, you can download the PDF here:
