Encouraging, Inspiring and Empowering the Girl

Inspire Cheshire have been busy this summer getting ready for a brand new event they will be launching this October.

Tuesday 11th October will mark the ten year anniversary of International Day of the Girl. For a decade, this day has shed light upon the issues impacting girls and young women across the globe including; education, mental and physical wellbeing, training and job opportunities, and many more.

Since its inception, Inspire Cheshire has championed the mental health and wellbeing of young women in Crewe, Winsford and the surrounding areas. The project provides a free counselling service along with a wide range of resources and workshops to further empower girls to look after their own wellbeing.

Speaking about the upcoming event, Inspire counsellor Abbi Jarvis said: “Both the Inspire Project and International Day of the Girl are rooted in amplifying the voices of young women. It feels fitting to bring the two together.”

The event will be a conference made up of four presentations; the impact of Inspire Cheshire, empowerment groups in schools, Making Space for Girls and the importance of women in sport. Following on from this, the Inspire Project will be launching a planner of wellbeing activities aimed at young women, including self defence and floristry.

Abbi added: “With the ever increasing referrals we are receiving, the importance of young women’s mental health cannot be understated. We hope this conference will raise awareness of just how much support we can offer our local young women.”

If you would like to attend the conference on Tuesday 11th October, you can book for free and find out all the details here.
