Sister System, the big sister you never had, who works to enable, enhance and empower girls and young women who are, or have been, in Care to fulfil their potential.
Sister System works with girls, aged 13-21, affected by the care system to help them achieve a life free of abuse, with good mental health, such that they re-engage with education and move into and sustain education, employment or training post-16.
Our think tank workshops are designed to further inform our co-production model. We understand that the girls and young women with lived experienced are the experts. We work alongside them, helping them to find their voice to ensure that the Sister System offer continues to enable, enhance and empower girls and young women throughout their adolescence and into womanhood.
Ambassador events are an opportunity for young women to develop skills as Ambassadors and establish supportive and dynamic relationships with their peers. The workshops and peer-to-peer events introduce young women and girls to Sister System's Empowerment Model, and the role of becoming Ambassadors.
Sister System is an Open College Network (OCN) approved centre. Alongside Sister System's bespoke programme, we currently offer accredited courses at levels 1, 2 & 3 in peer mentoring, preparing for employment and leadership skills.
Our unique mentoring programme is developed to suit the needs of our young women as they journey through the Sister System programme. Our team is a combination of Big Sisters, Ambassadors, professional coaches and Sister System mentors. Working on a 1-1 basis to support programme completion, internship and work readiness and ensuring that sisters can access the right help to avoid or recover from challenges they face.
