Safe in Tees Valley News

Chloe and Natalie go Underground for girls and young women

Posted : 30/09/2014

Thank You Chloe (young person) and Natalie (Diversionary Activities Co-ordinator) of the Corner House Youth Project in Stockton who travelled to London on behalf of Safe in Tees Valley to support the development of a new national Girls’ and Young Women’s Programme.

A recent review of national youth club charity Ambition programmes has identified the need to develop female-specific work.  This reflects recent statistics which highlight some of the issues faced by girls and young women nationally:

Safe in Tees Valley are one of eight organisations accross England who have engaged, as Ambition members,  in the development of the Ambition led programme. As a Safe in Tees Valley associate member the Corner House Youth Project/ Know How North East are supporting this work.

Following a review of local, national and international practice in this area,  as well as academic and social research,  an innovative programme will be co-produced by Ambition, member organisations and girls and young women.

Safe in Tees Valley recognise the need for single gender work with girls and young women locally. We are delighted to be working with the Corner House Youth Project, Ambition and other Ambition members to bring new resources and opportunities to the area to address this need.
