We provide personal and social development activities, workshops and courses for girls and young women aged between five and 25.

Our work is delivered by trained volunteers across England and Wales, as well as by our early intervention youth workers and prevention practitioners in Skegness and Great Yarmouth. We provide guidance, advice and information about a number of topics, issues and themes including healthy living, positive relationships, education and independence.

For many girls and young women, their GFS group provides stability and an opportunity to develop their understanding of the importance of supporting and accepting one another, regardless of economic status, race, religion, cultural background, sexual orientation or ability. We also support and promote campaigns addressing issues affecting girls and young women such as sexualisation, abusive relationships, discrimination, lack of equality in the workplace and everyday sexism.

Our programmes are made up of many different activities. Check out our activities database to see them all.
