Gathering of Kindness

The Gathering of Kindness aims to build, nurture and instil a culture of kindness throughout the health care system.


GOK 2017, our first public event, was conducted in October and November 2017 with the theme "The Power of Kindness"/"Continuing the Conversation". The five-day Gathering provided participants with the opportunity to share their ideas, their work and their projects. Through this, we aim to better understand how we can improve our healthcare environment for all stakeholders, including staff and consumers.


The GOK website discusses our work, and importantly, provides a wealth of resources that allow you to create your own gatherings.  The more conversations we have, the more we can build momentum for change.

Everyone has a role to play: kindness starts within all of us.
