Online Charity & Non Profit Fundraising Services

Narrative 4 works with young people to harness the power of exchanging stories to equip and embolden them to improve their lives, communities, and the world. Our work is proven to help participants see things from other people’s viewpoints, and build empathy within themselves.


Narrative4 are a not for profit organisation that aims to build empathy in young people by using the Story Exchange model and the telling of stories to help people connect and see life and experiences through the eyes of another. We train teachers, youth and community workers to run our programme in their schools and organisations. We believe storytelling is the perfect medium for connecting people and by telling our stories we can feel closer, heard and more filled with empathy for each other.
