Hear Me Roar - a programme to support young women




A programme to support young women
Venue: Creating Futures
Mayfield Community Centre, Farnborough GU14 8TX
Starts: Thursday 3rd August 1pm-3pm

 

The pressures young women face in 2017 are astronomical. Growing up in a world where the internet reigns supreme, where ‘social’ media is available 24/7, our timelines are bombarded by images of impossible beauty (all photo shopped of course!), where any young woman can become instantly famous and rich by performing sex acts on a reality TV show

 

A generation of young women has developed who have no sense of self, no belief, less than positive role models and no sense of hope. They often seek love and attention wherever they can in a desperate bid to feel something, anything, resembling what they think is love.

 

‘Hear me Roar’ seeks to support 11-16 year old females who are vulnerable, isolated, and/or at risk of child sexual exploitation. Over the course of 8-12 hours (depending on the needs of the group) and split over 3-4 sessions we offer girls the opportunity to openly and honestly discuss and address issues such as; body image, self-esteem, confidence, healthy relationships, keeping safe on and offline, sexual health, abusive relationships and how to access help and support.

 

We want to create a community of young, strong women who can take ownership of their lives, their bodies and foster caring support networks. It’s kind of girl power with bells on!
