Core module
Working with young women and girls affected by gangs and county lines

 

​An interactive 3 hour module delivered by our practitioners. This module must be completed before any further modules on our Star Project exercises or reflective practice.

  • Attendees learn about Abianda – our model of practice, values and services.

  • We provide an introduction to Solution Focused Practice, a cornerstone of our approach to working with young women.

  • We explore and challenge the stereotypes and myths around young women, gangs and county lines, and facilitate a critical discussion of the term “gang”.

  • We address the risks young women face, and the barriers to them accessing support.

  • We share the ideal knowledge, skills and attitudes young women tell us they want professionals to have.

  • Attendees will come away with enhanced understanding of how young women and girls are affected by gangs and county lines, what stops them getting help, and how to respond.
