Young Women’s Service Turns Four – what our roles mean to us
June 4th, 2021
Tomorrow marks four years since Redthread’s Young Women’s Service was launched. In this blog, VAWG Lead Jess Macdonald and the Young Women’s Workers share what the service and their roles mean to them.
We learn so much from the young women we work with in hospital.
Our work creates a safe space for young women to speak up and advocate for themselves.
Facilitating a safe space for the young women we work with empowers them to be their authentic selves.
We know that when victims feel blamed, they are less likely to seek help in recovering from a traumatic experience.
We tailor our approach to every young woman and girl we meet in the hospital.
VAWG Lead Jess Macdonald said:
“We are so excited to be celebrating four years of our Young Women’s Service. The project has grown from two to four Young Women’s Workers as well as a VAWG Lead meaning that we are able to support more young women than ever before.
The main feeling we associate with our talented group of Young Women’s Workers and every single young woman that they walk alongside is utter pride! We are honoured that the young women we work with allow us to be a part of their journey and are grateful for the passion and dedication that our Young Women’s Workers show every day.”Back to Latest News
