EXCITING NEWS!

We are SO excited…an actual adventurer, Stephanie Innes-Smith is coming to talk to our girls on 25th May.

Stephanie is currently in training for Operation Ice Maiden, which aims to be the first all female British Military team to cross the Antarctic land mass.  Stephanie will be telling the girls all about the freezing conditions they will be facing, the training and preparation for the expedition, the clothing they’ll need and the food they will be eating.  This is a brilliant opportunity for our girls to meet and question a real-life adventurer!

For more information about this amazing, inspiring expedition, go to:

Our Eastern European Girls group is moving to the Compton Centre from next week.

Interested? Get in touch with Zara on 07535 877090.

Safe Space News!

Following on from the success of our Safe Space service, Getaway Girls are very proud to announce that we have secured further funding for three years to continue our Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE) work with young women, aged 11 – 18 from the East Leeds areas, who are at low to medium risk.

Please have a look at our new, updated leaflet below which has relevant information about the service.  We would be very grateful if you would bring this to the attention of anyone else who you think would be interested.

We are also providing information sessions for key organisations, partnerships and networks in the East Leeds areas, to publicise the service and talk about developments and new objectives of the service delivery. If you would like us to come and talk to your team, or find out more about the Cluster areas we cover, please get in touch!
