  • Creating a Go Girls’ logo with selfies to tie in with the #ChooseToChallenge theme.

We’re aware just how much of a struggle these times have been for young people in our communities, so we couldn’t be more proud of what Go Girls are achieving right now.

Go Girls is a social action group for young women aged 14-24.   We run it in partnership with Pobl Housing to work cross-county with young people from Torfaen, Newport, Caerphilly and Swansea.  Our aim is to raise young people’s self-esteem, confidence and resilience to enable them to be the best they can be.

If you’d like to find out more about Go Girls, we’d love to hear from you.  Get in touch with me at
