Girls Like Us, since 2018, deliver workshops around social issues and wellbeing for girls with black and mixed heritage. By providing a safe space for open discussion, we influence the way black girls experience life, school and interact with others.
Girls Like Us exists to help and support black girsl through their physical, emotional and moral development in safe environment, as the programme is a response to lived, real and historical trauma that black girls are faced with.

By providing group discussions that inspire critical thinking and allow participants to question their assumptions, black girls can make sense of the world around them in an open and non-judgmental space. We deliver workshops through a series of small creative and interactive group session and additional 1-1
