She’s that Girl who … talks about Women Making Change on ITV Calendar News

She's that Girl, Uncategorized
My name is Sharandeep Flora and I am 18 years old. I have been coming to Getaway Girls for 4 years and now I am a peer-educator here. I'm also a DJ and have been doing this since being involved with Sister Sound Salon, a multi-media group at Getaway Girls. As a peer-educator at Getaway Girls, I believe that our ideas for the “Women making a change” project are important because young women can feel inspired. Learning about the suffragettes will make young women want to continue to campaign for equality. I am also a part of the Girls Forum, a safe place for girls…

Today we went raft building at Yeadon Tarn.  When we arrived our mentor showed us our equipment for the rafts, being only 4 barrels, 2 pieces of wood and rope.  He showed us how to do a figure of eight rope and guided us though building process.  We eventually got our life jackets on and the next step was to get in the water! Everyone was nervous as the weather was sunny but still cold.  It was described as "fun and the day filled with screams and laughter" which helped team building skills. Majority of us fell in the water…

She’s that girl….who’s celebrating World Mental Health Day 2017

She's that Girl, Uncategorized
Today the Side-By-Side groups here at Getaway Girls are celebrating World Mental Health Day, a day to raise awareness of mental health and to challenge the stigma and discrimination that people who struggle with their emotional wellbeing experience in their lives. Everyone who comes to the group has experienced what it is like to be judged, laughed at, or avoided and ignored because of their mental health, and it is reactions like these that we want to challenge. 1 in 4 people will struggle with their mental health at some point in their lives, that’s around 16 million people just…
