Getting Out For Good

GOFG poster


Getting Out for Good is working with at-risk young women and girls across Oldham and Tameside to understand the challenges they face in their local communities and to help them build positive social networks. By minimising harm from negative peer-networks the project hopes to enable young women build confidence to make choices from risky situations or behaviours, serious youth violence or gang influence.


The youth focussed project aims to boost the aspirations of young women and girls through sport and arts with support from mentors. Activities include boxing and fitness, football, drama, and film-making with each activity leading to nationally recognised AQA accreditation.


Researchers from the Manchester Centre for Youth Studies and Sociology at Manchester Metropolitan University are working in partnership with local voluntary groups and statutory agencies for the Getting Out for Good project, which is funded by Comic Relief.
