More About The Organisation
We welcome girls and women from all backgrounds including those who may have dropped out of school; women from black and ethnic minority backgrounds, refugees or asylum seekers; women who have been involved in the criminal justice system; those with learning disabilities; young mums and mums-to-be and those with mental health problems.
We offer specialist programmes to meet individual and local needs. These include counselling services, support for mothers experiencing depression, and help for women coming out of prison. We also work with boys and men where we think it will benefit women.
At our friendly drop-in sessions girls and women can talk about anything they like, learning from each other guided by a project worker. At group sessions women learn about parenting, healthy eating, diet and exercise, safe sex and sexual health, alcohol and drugs.
We run informal education programmes. In a relaxed atmosphere we help girls and women learn literacy, numeracy, money management, citizenship, how to stay healthy and other useful life skills.
Platform 51 Bristol encourages girls and women to have their say locally and nationally. They take part in conferences and training events and influence policy by responding to government consultations, meeting MPs (including the Prime Minister) and speaking at political party conferences.
