United in Kind Coaches will be connecting people and organisations, supporting new community initiatives, recruiting volunteers to champion those most at risk of loneliness, as well as also providing a helping hand to existing groups and organisations where needed.

RCCE have United in Kind Coaches in nine districts and are working with WECAN, who are working in the West of the county (Uttlesford, Harlow and Epping).

This service is part of the new United in Kind Campaign, supporting and encouraging  acts of kindness , whether that is passing on small acts of kindness, learning together or tidying together, or helping people access training, workshops and resources to assist them to deliver their own activities.

If you would like to get involved or find out more please either contact the United in Kind Coach for your district or contact Sarah Sapsford (Community Engagement Manager):
