Introducing 'Jot' the friendly robot

Suffolk County Council's Children and Young People's Engagement Hub Team, in partnership with NHS Suffolk and North East Essex Integrated Care Board (ICB), have launched a 'Jot the friendly robot' campaign. 

Jot the friendly robot is a new character that is being used in Suffolk to help start a conversation with children about emotional wellbeing, and the importance of talking about our feelings.

Jot the robot gives tips to children about things that they can do to help feel better when they are feeling anxious or worried, and to provide a fun way to assist parents, carers, and primary schools, in engaging children to talk about how they are feeling, and support them with emotional literacy (managing difficult emotions). 

Jot the robot's wellbeing resource packs are being sent out to  primary schools in East and West Suffolk, which should be received after the May Half-term (2023). The pack will include a Jot the robot booklet and flash cards which can be used in class with the children.

There is also the opportunity for primary schools to book on to a Jot the robot workshop from June, which will touch on the Jot resources and gently get children talking about their feelings as they build their own robot. To book a workshop schools can email: 

Please note we are only able to offer the jot resource packs and workshop to primary schools in East and West Suffolk.
