VIBE (Voice, Influence, Be Empowered) is a lottery funded initiative exploring preventative approaches with girls and young women to reduce the risks they face.
Our key strategic goal is to prevent vulnerable and marginalised girls from victimisation and harm (including harm that may result from entering the Criminal Justice System). Over the next 5 years we will consult with young women and girls to develop models of support. Their input will provide invaluable evidence based learning about how to identify, engage and support vulnerable girls to produce more positive futures.

By the end of the project, we aim to share our learning with a wide range of stakeholders. We expect the project to improve outcomes for vulnerable girls by influencing how services are currently provided, as well as future commissioning of young women’s services, locally, regionally and nationally.
Any girl aged 12-19 can be involved. There is no 'referral critera' and all activies are free and in a safe, women-only environment.
