Support Us


Together, #Letsmakecompassionmatter

Please join us in giving children the tools they need to build a more compassionate, less anxious future, post-Covid.

Compassion Matters is offered to any school, for free. We believe that every child, whatever their background, needs these tools. The course is funded entirely by generous donations from individuals and trusts and is underpinned by research from the Dalai Lama Centre for Compassion.

“I’m trying to act kinder to others than I was before.” – Year 5 pupil, CM graduate
