Roots of Empathy is a programme for primary school children. The programme’s aim is to increase empathy - the ability to understand how another person feels. Children learn to care for and respect each other, which leads to a reduction in bullying and aggression.
At the heart of the programme are a neighbourhood baby and parent who visit the classroom every three weeks over the school year. In 2022, the programme is being offered virtually due to Covid, and to accommodate individual contexts and circumstances.
Roots of Empathy currently needs parent and baby volunteers to take part in our virtual programme from January 2022.
