The Girls Network looking for North East women mentors

The Girls' Network works with schools to match 14-19 year old girls with strong female professionals to act as a mentor to increase confidence, aspirations and self belief. Most girls are influenced by the people closest to them, if they do not see women in challenging and rewarding jobs in varied roles they are unable to have the self belief needed to aspire to these roles themselves. You can't be what you can't see! 

Working Together to Prevent Domestic Abuse Among 16 to 24 Year Olds

Friday 9 November in Middlesbrough, Tuesday 13 November in North Tyneside, Monday 26 November in Sunderland, all 9.30am to 12.30pm. These workshops in November as part of a North East research project on domestic abuse prevention in 16-24 year olds. This age group experiences high rates of domestic abuse according to local and national data and therefore there is a need to prevent and educate from an earlier age. Domestic Abuse is a challenging social problem and this study is focused on getting research into practice.
