Where girls come together to learn and play

The Thursday Girls Group has been running weekly for over two years, providing a relaxed environment for girls to express themselves and share experiences.

The group dedicates time to educate the girls about personal safety issues, but also incorporates activities and games, so the girls can learn and have fun; the longevity of the group has created lasting friendships and trust, and is seen to play a really important part in the girls development.

Here is what the girls and parents/carers have said about the group:

“Best friends forever! I love everyone in this group – I love the talks we have.”

“It is fun and I make new friends.”

“It’s nice to be with friends and talk about stuff.”

“Its great to have our own group and our own name – Best Friends Forever, we are best friends.”

“Ms. Suzanne is kind and listens to us if we need to talk about school.”

“My daughter loves meeting with the group. Not only is it fun, it’s also a safe place for her to make friends who are more like her and will not tease her for her medical problems. She also feels good to know there is someone who she can talk to about any problems with school and home. (Plus she gets a break from her little brother – her words!)”

“The SNFC has done amazing work with my kids, they are always friendly and my kids feel so accepted. The girls look forward to Ms. Suzanne’s groups and any other events; the SNFC has been a great help and support to my family.”

“My daughter really enjoyed the group – it was like a little get away for her, just for girls. As a busy family with a small baby, I barely have time to do anything with her. I think the Family Support Programme is awesome – it gives parents some free time while kids are in a safe, enjoyable environment.”
