Creating Compassionate Children

High five between boy and dogCreating Compassionate Children is one of the two main programmes that we run under the Fostering Compassion Banner and consists of the undernoted services for care experienced and vulnerable children aged 3–19 years of age. It also includes the delivery of ‘taster’ sessions for Primary and Secondary Schools in areas of deprivation or those with children with Additional Support Needs.

As part of Creating Compassionate Children we also offer one-to-one support for children who do not do well in larger groups. In addition, our ‘Teach the Teachers’ initiative provides training for teachers on how to deliver elements of our activities so that they can reach many more pupils in their schools.
