"Taking part in Butterfly has been life-changing, I feel so much more confident, it's given me the time and space that I needed away from my 'real life' to assess what I want from life. My new life starts today."

Butterfly helps to build the self-esteem and confidence of girls and young women, in addition to raising aspirations and providing education about relationships and sex.

Butterfly is delivered as a specialist six-session program or through 1-2-1 coaching/mentoring for girls and young women with particular difficulties or demonstrating risky behaviour.

Everything covered links to the development of confidence, self-esteem, aspirations and life skills. The sessions cover subjects such as body image, strengths, contraception, relationships, decision-making and the challenges they face.
