Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, visited our most recent ‘Conscious Girls’ session on Wednesday 21st July held at The Chestnut Centre in Deighton.
The Duchess of York visited the weekly ‘Conscious Girls’ session, a grassroots youth-led initiative focused on improving the resilience of young women aged 12-16 years old. Conscious Girls provides a safe and non-judgmental environment for young women to discover who they are, improve their social awareness and build a network of support.
The sessions cover a wide range of topics to inspire and empower young women from the least advantaged communities by meaningful engagement in positive activities.
During her visit, the Duchess spoke to the group about important issues, including mental health, self-confidence, female empowerment and her own self-esteem issues.
Commenting on the visit, Conscious Youth Co-Founder and Director of Operations, Sophie Simpson said: “We are so grateful that the Duchess took the time to come and visit our Conscious Girls yesterday. She really made an impact on the group by sharing her personal experiences with issues young people are facing on a daily basis.
“This is definitely an experience the young women and all at Conscious Youth will never forget. What a character she is, truly a remarkable woman with a lot of wisdom to share.”
