Streetwise is currently recruiting young women for their next EmpowHER group work programme, which they hope to start at the beginning of August. The group is aimed at young women who have been affected by domestic or sexual violence however they will not be asked to disclose this in the group. They do a 1-2-1 meeting beforehand to help the young person feel comfortable and assess suitability for the group.
Young women do lots of self-care activities, including Yoga, explore what it means to be a female, body positivity, assertiveness etc.
The #iwill campaign have commissioned research to understand what young people coming from lower socio-economic groups understand by social action and what motivates them either to engage or not to engage.
They would like to hold two focus groups here in the North East, one with young people aged 13 to 15 who are currently engaging in youth social action and another with young people aged 13 to 15 who are not currently engaging in youth social action.
Each focus group will last approximately an hour and they are looking for 6 -10 young people to take part.
WRC have teamed up with the Women's Budget Group to research issues facing funding for the UK Women's Sector.
We are asking women's organisations (not-for-profit groups led by and for women) to fill in this survey about the financial sustainability and health of the women's sector across the UK. The data collected here will help us to produce a report on the state of funding for the sector, which will be come out later this year.
