Crystal Palace FC Foundation’s Breaking Barriers project is running a Girls’ Empowerment Programme, which is funded by Affinity Sutton. The programme is aimed at girls age 16+ who would like to take part in sports and leisure activities supported by workshops around drug awareness, healthy eating, female role models and empowering women.
The programme of meetings started on Tuesday 17th January. To start, they are being held at AnerleyTown Hall on Anerley Road, between 5 and 7 pm. Participants themselves will come up with ideas and suggestions which will then be used to create a weekly activity schedule. The programme is up to 12 weeks and at the end of the programme the participants will receive an award and be offered volunteering/ training or employment opportunities.
