You Can Flourish

Supporting Girls

Flourish provides 1:1 and small group mentoring for girls (from all faiths and backgrounds) aged 10-18 in Warwickshire, who struggle with their self-esteem, mental health and emotional wellbeing. Mentoring is delivered in schools and community settings by amazing female staff and volunteers, many from local churches. They provide a safe, nurturing environment for girls to address the challenges they face and develop strategies to support them in their future lives and to help realise their full potential. 

Founded in 2015, Flourish is the only specialist mentoring service in Warwickshire that supports girls aged 10–18 who are struggling with their self-esteem and mental/emotional wellbeing.

Many girls we support are socially excluded and at risk of future disadvantage. In 2023-2024, 78% of girls referred had low self-esteem, 59% experienced anxiety, 36% felt isolated, 32% had self-harmed, 34% had Special Educational Needs, and 28% received Pupil Premium. These needs isolate them, disrupt their education, cause low self-worth and curb their future chances.

Girls come to Flourish for support with issues including social anxiety and panic attacks, bullying or problems with friendships, family breakdown, low confidence and self-worth, poor body image and difficulties managing emotions like anger or sadness. If not addressed, these issues persist into adulthood, resulting in women with limited ambitions, unlikely to put themselves forward for jobs, promotions and positions of leadership in society. 

We are women supporting girls. Motivated by our Christian ethos, we’re here to listen, understand and support girls from all walks of life, enabling them to recognise their worth, live to their full potential and get to where they want to be. We have supported over 800 girls since we were founded, and funding from Westhill is helping us to transform 250 more girls’ lives through 1:1 and small group mentoring. This is being delivered to girls in schools and the community by our lovely team of female staff and volunteers. 

Our Projects

Our one-to-one mentoring is designed to build self-esteem, nurture emotional resilience, improve mental wellbeing and build a toolkit for life. Mentoring takes place at school or another suitable place over a period of 12 weeks.

“I feel like a brand new person – I was blind to all the good things but now I’m better.” (Mentee). 

Our Flourish Course comprises 8 weekly sessions for groups of up to 8 girls. Using games, crafts, discussion, and creative journaling – all designed to build better self-esteem - we cover topics including friendships, discovering worth, managing emotions and positive self-talk.

“I learned that I love being creative and that I enjoy art. [...]  I learned how to be myself, and that feelings change - and it really helps me to know that I can talk to my mum and to friends.” (Flourish Course Participant)

Our Rebuild Course comprises 7 weekly sessions that focus on understanding emotions and building emotional resilience. These sessions offer the ideal safe space to explore and identify emotions together and to create a physical and mental 'toolbox' of coping mechanisms and strategies to help participants thrive long after the course has ended.

“Flourish helps to equip girls with the ability to reach their full potential. My students who have worked with Flourish have all seen significant improvements in not only their attendance and achievement but self- esteem and mental health. They feel listened to and prepared to deal with the challenges life brings.” (School teacher)
