Girls Group

Our project allows for young women in the area who are currently being excluded from a range of opportunities, the space to have fun, and take part in activities, which are rarely available or accessible to them.

Girls also have the opportunity to seek advice, support and guidance on any personal or social issues and on education and employment issues (homework help, CV writing, job hunting, application writing).

Our group discussions cover issues such as drugs, sexual health and relationships, career options and lifestyle choices, incorporating cultural and social identity, e.g. sex/gender issues and ethnicity/social harmony.

The environment further enables young women to:

ο Develop self-awareness AND self-worth

ο Meet challenges and build relationships

ο Personal achievement and build on confidence and self-esteem

ο A stronger sense of community

ο Make friends and have fun
