Research and consulting

The work of Sussex Kindness Research broadly fits within two main themes: research intending to understand the nature and impact of kindness, and research on specific kindness interventions designed to promote wellbeing. These themes have important connections with each other, and they both inform and are informed by theoretical advances across multiple disciplines.



Our work is supported by KindnessUK, a not-for-profit organisation with the goal of making kindness a greater part of everyone’s daily lives and increasing the awareness of the positive benefits of kindness to health and overall wellbeing of society. KindnessUK also funds the Kindness UK Doctoral Conference Award
