Founder Michele Elliott looks back... and forwards
Michele Elliott founded Kidscape in 1985. In the last three decades, much has changed, and we’re delighted that she still has a close relationship with the charity.
Recently, Michele visited the Kidscape office in London to say hello to old friends and take some time to watch Feeling Happy, Feeling Safe with young Elijah - son of our CEO Lauren Seager-Smith.
In this short video, Michele talks about the climate in the 1980s which she faced when she wrote Feeling Happy, Feeling Safe, what’s changed since then, and how to watch the children’s animations with little ones, while Elijah shows us all how to say a big, loud “No!”
Feeling Happy, Feeling Safe
Feeling Happy, Feeling Safe is a series for pre-school children to watch with parents, carers or professionals. Each short film is designed to open conversations about emotions and safety, and supplies discussion questions.
The series has been developed from Kidscape founder Michele Elliott's original book of the same name.
