Warrington Youth Club - Girls Group (Wednesday)

The Girls Group projects (ages 7-12 or 12-19)

The programme is designed to facilitate an environment where girls can make friends, have fun and gain information regarding services in the local area. Through activities, games and structured sessions we hope to improve social skills, confidence and self-esteem, whilst empowering young women to make the right choices.

At present we have two separate programmes that run as part of the Girls Group project.

Wednesday night Girls Group is the programme designed for girls with a lower level of support needs. Girls are expected to attend every week for a course of 12 weekly sessions that focus on a different issue faced by young women. Depending on the girls that enrol on the programme, and their own personal issues, we adapt each course to best suit the needs of the girls attending.

Our Wednesday night group is much bigger than the Monday night programme as the girls are deemed less vulnerable. However girls that are referred to our Wednesday night programme are often in need of intervention for a very wide range of reasons. 

Due to the lower additional support needs, the activities are much more focussed on group work whereby, through games, activities and role play.
