This week is Random Acts of Kindness Week – a time when we encourage ourselves and others to focus on kindness and look for ways we can spread positivity both at home and work.

To celebrate, we invited our people to nominate colleagues who make a positive difference – whether that’s by doing something as simple as making them a daily cup of tea or asking ‘are you ok?’ – or simply being amazing at their job.

Each Random Act of Kindness nominee was then sent their personalised nomination straight to their inbox. All nominees were also entered into our Random Act of Kindness prize draw with the chance to win gift vouchers – because a little thank you goes a long way.

This year we received hundreds of kindness nominations from our Operational and Head Office colleagues, highlighting that our people truly do live our values and this week particularly highlights our value that ‘Every person matters – we are people focused and value skills, gifts and potential. We listen. How people think and feel matters; everyone has a voice.’

Here are some of the kind words our people had to say:

Leona, one of our Area Managers, nominated Jane, a Team Leader, for a Random Act of Kindness. Leona said “Jane and her teams are always welcoming and showcase AFG’s values in such a professional manner. She is an extraordinary Team Leader and a real asset to my team.”

Josie, Team Leader nominated Kati, Team Leader: “Josie is a great member of the team, nothing is ever too much for her and she always makes everyone feel valued and welcome.”

Tarim, Support Worker nominated Liz, Support Worker: “Liz has guided and encouraged me with everything. I would not have been able to come so far without her support.”

Thank you to our colleagues for spreading kindness throughout the week.
