Training Course

Working with Gang-Affected Women

Please find attached details and a booking form for a One Day Training Course, Working with Gang-Affected Young Women, Link to Change are presenting in collaboration with Abianda at the Priory Centre, St Neots, on September 29th 2017.

Gang-affected young women are a hidden group in our communities. They often don’t feel safe to access services, and professionals may feel that they don’t have the knowledge, skills or confidence to respond to the very unique risks that young women face in the context of gangs.

Delegates will hear first-hand testimony from our Abianda’s Young Trainers who have been affected by gangs in different ways. The training is interactive and experiential. Delegates will understand:

  1. The policy and research context of supporting gang-affected young women;
  2. How young women are affected by gangs, the roles they may play and the associated risks;
  3. What stops gang-affected young women form accessing services;
  4.  Abianda’s practice model and consider a ‘culture shift’ in service delivery;
  5. Introduction to practical tools to ensure a young-women led approach and process.

The training is delivered by Abi Billinghurst and Abianda Young Trainers from 10 am – 4.30pm with registration from 9.30 am.

Light refreshments only will be provided. On-site catering facilities are available.
