Girlz Only Project – Young Women

The Girlz Only Young Women’s Project based within the Preston Road Women’s Centre works with young women aged between 10-18 who have been affected by domestic abuse either within their own relationships or were there is domestic abuse within the family home. We offer specialist one-to-one support in a place that is comfortable for young women for example schools, colleges or children centres.

We can support with:

  • One-to-one domestic abuse support
  • Information and advice
  • Emotional and practical support
  • Safety work
  • Advocacy support
  • Housing support
  • Support with accessing other services.

We aim to help build confidence and resilience, so that young women feel empowered to make positive choices and identify their own strengths and skills. We aim to support young women in identifying risk and explore ways to increase their safety.

We can also help young women 16-25 with accommodation and housing support either through our internal housing project or external housing services. We can help with advice and information and explore their housing options suitable for them based on their needs and wishes.

Young women can self-refer or be referred to the service by professional, family and friends. Professionals can refer using our referral form and young women can self refer by contacting us through phone, website or coming into the centre.


We also provide a Girls Only Youth Club every Wednesday and Thursday evenings between 4.30pm-6.30pm for young women aged between 10-16. We provide a safe space where young women can participate in fun activities, make new friends and build their confidence and self-esteem. The sessions are ‘young women led’ which means they make decisions on the things they do.
