Girls Group

Join our group for young women with disabilities!

WHAT WE DO

 Land Securities have kindly funded a monthly advocacy project. Young women with learning disabilities will explore their identity, expressing their thoughts and feelings about contemporary issues affecting their lives.

We  use an arts-based approach to develop the young womens’ leadership, social and communication skills, through craft, DIY, film-making and drama

 

OUR VISION

To tackle female objectification by creating opportunities that increase the agency of young women.

We are working to develop a collective consciousness by exploring the status of disabled
women and challenging stereotypes.
