What is ShopKind?

#ShopKind is a retail industry campaign, co-ordinated by ACS (the Association of Convenience Stores) on behalf of the UK Home Office, that is responding to the growing problem of abuse and violence toward shopworkers. Our aims are simple:

• Encourage kind behaviour in shops.

• Acknowledge the essential role of shopworkers in our communities.

• Raise awareness about scale and impact of abuse and violence towards shopworkers.
