Southmead Girls’ Group is a weekly open access youth group for local teenage girls aged 11-16 years.
We meet on Monday nights from 7-9pm in the St Stephen’s Room, where we enjoy a range of crafts, games, cooking and other activities.
Popular evenings include ‘Ready Steady Cook’, team challenges, scrapbooking and quiz night. Typically we have between 15 and 20 girls attending the group each week. The group is advertised solely by word of mouth, with current attendees inviting their friends.
Our aim is to provide a safe, welcoming space for teenage girls in Southmead where we can cultivate consistent and meaningful relationships within the group. We want to raise the self-esteem and confidence of the girls who attend, in addition to offering them new opportunities to broaden their horizons and inspire them for the future.
The group is run by a team of dedicated volunteers, and we are always looking for new recruits, so do get in touch if you are interested!
