Service Description

Does your organisation work with young women and girls at risk of gang violence and county lines activities? This session offers an interactive 3-hour module delivered by our frontline practitioners. Our training is informed by current and former service users. Having young women who have been affected by gangs or county lines influence training content and delivery ensures that professionals from a wide range of sectors and specialisms understand the realities of young women’s lives and experiences. As such, we aim to increase professionals' awareness of gang-related harm in young women, including how to spot the signs and provide support. Learning Outcomes: - 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 an enhanced understanding of how young women and girls are affected by gangs and county lines, what stops them from getting help, and how to respond. **This event will take place on Zoom - an email with the link to join will be sent to you at least 24 hours prior to the event - please check your inbox and spam/junk folder for the invite.
