Looking Forward is for young women facing a range of challenges in their lives and runs in two groups, 11-14 and 14-18.  The sessions use a variety of art forms to help participants build confidence, self-esteem and an ability to positively interact with their peers, whilst also offering some respite from their day to day challenges.
