To provide a weekly drop-in service for girls aged 11-18. A safe space to build self-esteem and positive mental wellbeing.

We are Flourish!

 We are a charity set up in 2015 with a vision to see a generation of girls aged 11-18, know their true worth and be set free to flourish to their full potential. 

7 out of 10 girls do not feel good enough, almost half of girls avoid daily routine activities because of how they feel they look, and a quarter of girls aged 14 have self-harmed. 

Unhappy with the status quo of the pressures that young girls are facing, founders Char and Kerstin established Flourish to provide support, empowerment, and encouragement to girls to help them know their unique strengths, their immeasurable worth, and their world-changing potential.

We have a team of 20 volunteer women who provide one-to-one mentoring support and group courses in our community to helping girls explore and overcome the issues and pressures they are facing.   

As we have become more known in our community, we are more in demand. In the midst of a mental health crisis amongst young people, we are seeing increasing numbers of referrals for girls who need support quickly.  

So what do we hope to do next?!

With your donations, we want to establish a weekly evening drop-in session. A place for girls to access support, talk to a mentor, make friends, feel valued and find out more about looking after their mental wellbeing. We hope to do exciting activities including arts and crafts and bring in local artists and creatives to help. We will receive referrals for girls who will most benefit. 

All the money raised will go directly towards the first year of drop-in session costs, so please help us impact this generation of girls by donating!
