We’re a weekly girls’ youth group, open to girls and young women aged 10-14 years.

We offer weekly sessions which provide a space for girls and young women to meet new friends in a relaxed, girls-only environment and – most importantly – to have fun.

GFS groups are volunteer-led and run all over England and Wales. We offer a range of fun weekly activities including crafts, life skills, sports and games, as well as the occasional trip out and residential. We also provide advice and workshops on a variety of topics for our older groups.

Our weekly female-only groups offer young women the opportunity to:

  • Have fun – develop new supportive friendships and take part in activities, be creative and enjoy themselves.
  • Get advice and support – our volunteers are there every week to offer a friendly ear and chat to our girls and young women, we can also give advice on how to seek professional help if needed.
  • Try something new – we encourage girls and young women to learn new practical skills and hobbies and go on trips to new places.

Our programme of activities are fun, but ultimately designed to develop self confidence, life skills and resilience through being part of a supportive, non-judgmental group of girls and young women.
