Description of activity
Women and Girls Network (WGN) was established in 1987 and has spent over 30 years supporting women and girls across London affected by gendered violence.
This includes childhood sexual abuse, domestic violence, rape, prostitution (including trafficking and sexual exploitation), female genital mutilation (FGM), and so-called 'honour' based crimes such as forced marriage.
Our free, women-only and survivor-led service offers a holistic response to women and girls who have experienced, or are at risk of, gendered violence.
The aim of our work is to create a safe, non-judgmental and non-directive space in which women and girls can explore their experiences, and know that they will be listened to and believed.
WGN is based on feminist principles, which has empowerment as a key concept. We understand that every woman's healing journey is unique, and our services are designed to offer women the opportunity to travel along on their journey.
Young Women's Services
Women and Girls Network work with women of all ages, but we know that Young Women* especially those 11-25 years old have unique perspectives, experiences and needs. To meet these needs, we have a dedicated Young Women’s Team.
WGN Young Women’s Service provides free, safe and confidential services to young women, offering a range of support.
*We support all Self Identifying Young Women – including Non-Binary Young People, who feel that our service would best support their needs/experiences
