Small Acts Matter
What is it?
The Small Acts Matter campaign reinforces the value of doing little activities that build social well-being. We all intuitively know that doing things like visiting with neighbours, speaking with a small child, or helping someone with a chore, creates a sense of connection and social belonging. It usually makes us feel good! But, did you know, that research supports this intuition?!
The Small Acts Matter campaign highlights activities – validated through research – that build social belonging and connection. In the long run, a sense of belonging is a protective factor that prevents people from falling into crisis. Protective factors build resilience for individuals, families, and communities and keep them socially well.
