The girls will find a safe and fun environment that can help them to build confidence, self-esteem and support them in creating friendship and stable network of support.
Activities include arts, creative workshops, dancing, discussions and awareness raising.
We also organise girls only trips: we recently went to Brighton, to the cinema and to art exhibitions and will soon go to a residential weekend in Somerset. No pre-registration is required and young people can just turn up on the day and take part.


Social Evening (fun and creative workshops): Wednesdays 4--7pm.

Workshops are run in partnership with various external facilitators.  Activities can include song writing, applied theatre, photography, public speaking, film making, budgeting and employability workshops. In addition young people get time to have fun with each other while dancing to music of their choice, playing table football, pool and board games.
