GirlzWhat! is a girls only group that provides a safe environment for girls of 11 and above. We aim to promote wellbeing and positive attitudes toward themselves and relationships, to help them be aware of the unseen/negative influences that could result in an unsafe situation for themselves.
In our girls what sessions we talk about all the things that effect women, jobs, skills, pregnancy, domestic violence, sexual health, relationships and personal choices. We like to make sure all our girls are educated about life, including self help, cooking, and defence classes.
This is what we have coming up for our 2016 GirlzWhat!
Along with the diversity of cultures in the group, it provides a beautiful mix of flavors, not to mention the chance to try new things…… on the flip side we also like to have the occasional discussion around sexual health and relationship building, give a chance for those who wish, to share experiences of past or present, that the group may provide support, and then encourage positive coping strategies.
GirlzWhat! was launched over 2 years ago with great support from MP Amber Rudd, local press and many wonderful people from around Hastings and St Leonards. Following our launch we presented a number of workshops through the summer months which to great success landed us at Westminster Houses Of Parliament to input our ideas towards their enquiry on underage pregnancy.
GirlzWhat has been a positive part of my life, the ladies the encourage me, and lift me. It helps to know that I am not alone when it comes to my life experiences, that other women have been through it and survived, their advice is invaluable! I love GirlzWhat and I'm excited for the next part of the Journey!
