A massive THANK YOU to everyone who has donated so far and left such positive comments.  YOU help us make such a difference.  THANK YOU!

Help us sow the seeds of social change in the UK, rooting kindness, empathy and thoughtfulness in children.

When there is bullying or unkindness, outbursts of rage, fear, distress or withdrawal, every child suffers.

​Babywatching was developed to address the question, “what can we do to help children actually feel and express genuine empathy and kindness towards others?"

It's deceptively simple, we help children watch an attuned, attached, loving relationship by watching a parent and their baby 'be' with each other.  We ask simple questions that enable children to understand what a good relationship looks like and find that children then replicate this in their own relationships, at home and at school.  

The program has been proven to:
-      Reduce anxiety & aggression
-      Improve relationships & resilience
-      Increase self-awareness, empathy and self-regulation
-      Encourage language skills & confidence  

We want every primary school in the UK to have Babywatching as part of their curriculum.  The training for teachers is good value but schools are fearful to invest in innovative ideas.  We want to be able to offer the training for free to schools and bursaries for the ongoing mentoring costs.  Currently, our present funding means we only have enough money until July 2019

How it Works
  1. You are donating to PayPal Giving Fund UK, a registered charity (No. 1110538), which will email you a receipt for your donation and claim Gift Aid where eligible.
  2. GoFundMe’s platform is free. The charity will typically receive the funds from PayPal Giving Fund within 15-45 days of your donation if the charity has enrolled (or 90 days if the charity has not yet enrolled). Unlike other platforms, 100% of any Gift Aid will go to the charity as well.
* In very limited cases, a recommended charity may cease to meet PayPal Giving Fund's legal or other eligibility requirements. In such cases, PayPal Giving Fund will reassign the funds to a similar charity, and (wherever possible) seek a new recommendation from donors.
