Sister System’s offering is a unique, compelling and urgently needed programme of early intervention, providing accredited training and support to improve life chances for young women (13-24 years old) who are Looked After Children or Care Leavers.
Sister System Est. in 2017 is an OCN (Open College Network) approved centre and charitable organisation seeking to effect positive change for girls and young women who have been affected by the care system. We work alongside young women aged 13-24 years old, providing an early intervention programme that aims to help them to achieve a life free from abuse with good positive mental health such that they are better equipped to engage in education and employment. Sister System does this by providing intensive therapeutic mentoring, nationally accredited qualifications, workshops, a community of other sisters, internships and professional mentoring over a period of up to 9 years.
Sister System’s mission is to bridge the gap between care affected girls and mainstream society, working alongside them to ensure they have the same opportunities everyone else has-at home ,school , work and in our communities. We provide a pathway to break the barriers and allow them to identify and work towards fulfilling their potential and become socio-economically mobile. Well-being and education is central to our holistic approach. We enable and empower these young women to value themselves and build lasting relationships in both their personal lives, education and workplace
All of our unique programmes have been co-curated with young women and are built upon proven therapeutic models of intervention.
