We currently have spaces available for our city-wide healthy relationships group for 13-16 year old girls.
The Key girls group is for young women aged 13-16 from Leeds. It’s for those who have been in an abusive relationship themselves, have grown up around one, or who have something going on that might mean they may enter an unhealthy relationship in the future for example low mood, low confidence or difficult family relationships.
The group meets weekly on a Thursday evening in the city centre during term time, we provide taxis to get to group and home again. It’s a 26 week programme with sessions covering topics such as staying safe, building self-esteem, healthy family relationships, the impact of abuse on children, identifying relationship abuse, CSE, self-harm and managing difficult emotions like stress and anger. The group is really friendly and there’s no pressure to share anything they don’t want to.
When group members have completed the initial programme, there is the opportunity to go on to our Moving On Group if support is still needed. Young women can contact us themselves or be referred by a professional.

*Please note that we also have a Key young women’s group for those aged 16-25, but this group is currently full.*
