Organisation Description

WGN is a free, women-only service that supports women in London who have experienced violence, or are at risk of violence. We offer counselling, advocacy and advice for women and girls who have experienced gendered violence, including sexual and domestic violence. Our overall aim is to promote, preserve and restore the mental health and well-being of women and girls, to empower them to make a total and sustainable recovery from their experiences of violence.

We are unapologetically Feminist, Intersectional and Anti-Racist.

WGN’s training has at its heart the Women and Girls Network ethos. Much like the services we provide to women and girls, the principles of feminism, intersectionality, holistic and creative approaches are threads that run through all of our training.

As a Black led feminist organisation, our intention and plan is to progress conversations and actions into development of programmes that address themes of oppression, provide healing for racial and identity trauma, and provide safe spaces and practical strategies to engage Black and minoritised women.

We are passionate about delivering training that influences best practice and improves and enhances the effectiveness of front-line professionals working in the field of violence against women and girls (VAWG).

Attending our training gives you a deeper understanding of and one of a kind insight into WGN’s models and approaches. WGN has been working with women and girls for over thirty years and our training is packed with ancient womanist healing integrated with 21st century neuro-science. The training provides knowledge, tools, skills, and experiences for you to further enhance your practice.
