Hayley Bancroft and Jo Kelly have been holding a three week girls group to promote positive self-esteem, body image and healthy relationships.
The aims of each session changed slightly to suit the needs of the young people that attended. 4 young girls have attended each week.
The weeks was broken down as follows:
Week 1- Ice Breakers, work around Hayley getting to know them, Self-esteem, your own personal shield. The things that were important to help them feel safe.
Week 2- Their home environment and what people contribute positively around them towards their self-esteem.
Week 3- What you should wear on a date, they also made pizza and cakes as a treat and also decided to do make overs.
One of the young people T said ‘It’s been better than I thought it would be’ another young person ‘ asked can we meet every week?’
Hayley and Jo said ‘ it was a great success and it was nice to see the young people interacting positively with each other’
The group was a success and the young people have decided to meet every 8 weeks. Capstone North will be also looking at holding a boys group and then also a mixed young people group
