Getting out for Good is a mentoring project for girls and young women at risk of involvement in youth violence, between the ages of 14 and 21, and resident in Oldham, Tameside, Bury and Rochdale.
The project will run for 12 weeks and there will be four cohorts across the year.
Referrals are received from partner agencies such as, Children’s Social Care, Complex Safeguarding, Police, Probation, education, or the voluntary sector.
They are then allocated a mentor who will work with them to understand their strengths and difficulties using a range of tools and the collaboratively create a plan of support which may include work around substance misuse, positive relationships, self- esteem, emotional wellbeing, or education.
Individual mentoring sessions will run alongside weekly group activities in the community, gaining AQA accreditations along the way.
The Getting out for Good mentors will work alongside other professionals already involved.
In the middle and end of the project, the girls, along with their mentors will complete the initial tools again to measure progress. This will then be used to create an exit plan into other targeted or universal services.
Throughout the project, the girls will be supported with transport to promote engagement.
