Our Sorority provide support for vulnerable young women aged 15-25 to empower and support them with their personal, professional and parental development through mentoring, workshops and family support. We provide guidance and support to vulnerable young women who are (but not limited to) at risk of offending, abuse, substance misuse, poverty, exploitation, NEET and who feel excluded from society

Key facts:

  • Young women have a lack of role models who they can relate to and gain support from, making them insecure and lacking confidence.
  • With unemployment levels so high and low levels of educational attainment, young women start to believe that they are better off depending on befits and not aspiring to better themselves.
  • Children of young parents are generally at increased risk of poverty, low educational attainment, poor housing and poor health, and have lower rates of economic activity in adult life.
“Our Sorority cover topics which are not always addressed in students day to day lives. The issues are relatable and real and the sessions are conducted in and fun, safe and inclusive way. Our girls loved it.”

I have learnt new topics that I kind of had an understanding about but it filled in any empty spaces.

Vulnerability is a big part in our generation and people should be aware of this.
