After 155 years The YWCA in England & Wales has recently re-launched itself as Platform 51. The 51 is intended to indicate that women and girls make up 51% of the UK population.
Platform 51 has a number of downloadable resources that may be of interest to GEA members including downloadable info sheets on a range of issues including:
– Body image
– Education, employment and skills for young women.
