URPotential are thrilled to announce that they have attracted a 1year investment from the Community Foundation for Lancashire through their Tampon Tax Community Fund.

The tampon Tax Community fund aims to Build Skills and Confidence, Improve Health and Well-being and Build Social Networks for women and girls.

The Girls Matter project is a 12month project that will focus on young women’s safety, building skills and confidence. It will be delivered to young women 13-25yrs around keeping themselves safe and well. The young women will co-produce and co-design the project delivery to ensure it meets the current needs of young women. The young women will develop social action projects that will raise awareness of staying safe to the wider community in Blackpool.

We will work with specialists in self-defence, yoga and relaxation therapy. The activities will take place in the evening and at weekends across venues in Blackpool. In an ever changing world it is vital that young women can protect themselves and stay safe be that physically or online.

 “ URPotential are delighted to have been awarded this prestigious funding to support young women in Blackpool.Personal safety has become an issue of importance for everyone, but especially for young women. This project will offer safe keeping strategies and tips on how to stay safe combined with practical self-defence strategies and confidence building” said Linda Markey Director of URPotential.
