At Archway, and other GIPSIL venues, we run peer support groups where young people can offer each other company, empathy and mutual support.
Side By Side:
For women aged 18 – 25 who have lived experience of mental health issues. This group is a safe place for women to support each other around enhancing their wellbeing. It’s a place to air their worries about mental health, boost their confidence and positive self-esteem and to share their stories and experiences.
For young parents aged 16-25. A group that meets once a week for socialising and activities, including cooking, parenting, trips out. Creche provided.
Daisies and Jasmines
Domestic Violence Peer Support Groups for women and children. GIPSIL hosts and supports two weekly groups in East Leeds, including crèche provision.
GIPSIL runs Opportunity Shops in Harehills, Gipton and Seacroft. As well as traditional work club services – such as access to IT, internet and email, and assistance with CVs and job applications – Opportunity Shops enable attendees to sample opportunities which will move them closer to employment, such as volunteering, work experience and apprenticeships.
