Good for Girls

a project working with 10-14 year old Black and Brown girls. This was a pilot to support the participants to access relevant, holistic early intervention mental health support in trusted community spaces. This included support and guidance from trained youth professionals, and opportunities to develop relationships, skills and tools to maintain positive mental health. 

The purpose of the pilot was for the girls to take part in weekly activities to promote positive mental health and challenge stigma. They will:
access activities that promote wellbeing through arts and sports activities
discuss emotional wellbeing and issues they care about through Talking Circles
take leadership to promote wellbeing in their communities
some will design and deliver a social action project over the summer
some will attend a residential to become ‘Wellbeing Ambassadors’ for their organisation.

Getting Active

a sports development programme which has been created to provide young people with regular sports opportunities. The two aims are to increase the number of typically inactive young people taking part and to build the long-term capacity of community-based youth organisations to deliver diverse and accessible sports opportunities. 
Focused in the more disadvantaged areas of the capital where a lack of facilities, equipment, and trained instructors has built a barrier between young people and participation. 


We were able to deliver the Level 2 Sports Leadership qualification to a group of Black and Brown young women aged 16-21.

City Leaders

a social action programme takes teams of young people and provides the support and structure for them to build their team work skills, create opportunities in their youth organisations and pitch for funding for community projects on issues important to them. The young people we worked with created a wellbeing day for other young people, to educate them about mental health, sexual health and financial awareness.
