Make difference in women's lives by empowering women aged 16-25 living in your local community through FREE help and support when needed

by Arterne CIC in Plymouth, England, United Kingdom

There are women in our communities that need someone to turn too...they need someone to talk too about relationship issues, low self-esteem, a lack of self confidence, drug and alcohol issues, mental health issues and other vulnerabilities...the list goes on...these may be women you know, sisters, aunties, girlfriends, wives, nieces, daughters...it may even be you reading this campaign We never know when we may need help...sometimes life throws something at us that we may not understand or feel equipped to deal with and having support by sharing what's happening or worries with another person can really make a difference in the impact these things have Platform 50 provides this support to women aged 16-25 FREE of charge...it's always been this way and that's how Arterne CIC wants to keep it...help can be accessed quickly as there's no waiting list and the support they receive has a big impact which is life changing for them Women who have been supported by Platform 50 have said things like 'I am a different person- I needed help and I got it straight away- it's changed who I am and improved my self confidence - I'm beginning to like who I am- I couldn't of got through this without you all- it's made me want to help others' Are you someone who can help others and do you enjoy doing it...we are looking for people like you to help us right now...please help us support women who need guidance and support from someone else We are already reaching and supporting lots of women through a network of women - the impact is life changing and this is the reason we don't want this help to stop.  

Platform 50 can only continue with your support so we would like you to become part of the community to help other women.  The support offered to women is free of charge and we need to make sure we have everything in place for the project to keep going well into the future.


Platform 50 is supported by a group of volunteers from all walks of life, who meet with young women aged between 16 and 25 to provide support, encouragement and advice. There are a lot of young women today who need help and guidance on dealing with life and the choices available to them, they may be struggling in school or with a relationship. Or they could be battling with addictions, homelessness, poverty or mental illness. 

Arterne CIC volunteers are just a phone call away if they need a listening ear. There are so many pressures on young women today, particularly in areas of self-esteem and self-confidence. Arterne CIC want to help them to reduce the impact of the internal dialogue that people all have, which at times can create self doubt and stop people from achieving the things they want to do. Platform 50 can support women through a number of different situations and conversations, which enable them to lead a healthy, happy life and make good choices that impact positively on their mental and physical health.

The project has already begun helping women aged 16-25, after dozens of women responded to an appeal for volunteer coaches and mentors. The response has been amazing, women of all ages have come forward – from students and gym instructors to nurses and professionals who have worked in social services. Everyone’s got something to share, and what we do is based on listening.


A bit of guidance and support at a tough time in a person’s life can get them through a specific issue in their life at that time. This is very much about early intervention, which can prevent things from building up. It’s about getting in as early as possible.  There are no long waits so support can be immediately put in place.  Often, people who feel troubled don’t’ know what the problem is. Having an outside perspective can help. But if you don’t talk to someone, it can escalate. That’s why having a support network at a time of stress is so important.

Platform 50 is already supporting a number of young women and needs to raise money to take the project to the next stage and provide a project coordinator on a more substantive basis and an administrator to help support the project develop so that it can reach more women.  The feedback from women accessing the project has been very positive and Arterne CIC is very keen to ensure that more women can access this support.  Women supporting women is a very powerful dynamic and there are lots of different ways that this can be done. Platform 50 is a simple idea with a powerful impact on the lives of young women.

In future Platform 50 is also keen to look at how it can grow to make sure that the same type of support is in place for young men.
