The Power Up Programme is a new three-year programme which aims to build on Leap’s previous experience of working with young women affected by ‘gangs’ or at risk of getting involved in offending or dangerous activity.  Young women in London are increasingly at risk of serious violent crime and the rates of young female offenders are rising. In partnership with Leap’s Leadership and Enterprise programme which uses a whole group approach to tackle ‘gang’ involvement, Power Up will deliver training and development to young women in Lambeth.

 

The work will focus on young women aged 13-21 who may be affected by ‘gangs’, committing offences or otherwise struggling to make positive choices for themselves.  We will be using an asset-based approach, which will build on young women’s talent and potential, supporting and empowering them to develop their sense of self-worth, build positive relationships and develop the skills to manage conflict better in their lives.

 

The programme is funded by the Battersea Power Station Foundation. The programme activity is focused on the London Borough of Lambeth and looks to work collaboratively with local organisations and providers across the borough.
