Our Journey...

In 2017 three women with lived experience and a professional lense  came together with shared  frustration in current provision, labelling and ghettoising of care effected girls, this led us to connect with 5 girls and 4 colleagues whose experiences solidified the creation of  Sister System.  

 

We embarked upon a journey that birthed:

  • Co-designed our programme with 17 female care leavers through a series of Think Tanks in 2017.

  • Incubated by Impetus-PEF during our set-up and Think Tank stage (2017-2018).

  • Delivered our programme of mentoring, workshops and qualifications to >40 care affected girls and young women from 2018-2019; many of whom are now qualified peer mentors.

  • Secured funding to pay 4 graduates as peer mentors with our partner, First Star at St Mary’s University.

  • We have supported our beneficiaries into further education and employment. 

  • Secured further funding in 2020 to work with a new cohort of girls at high risk of being involved in serious organised crime.

  • Created robust partnerships and referral routes.

  • Been commissioned to deliver elements of our programme by Inner London Secondary Schools and Spurs Foundation.

  • Been invited onto a partnership contract with Haringey Young Adults Service & DWP.

  • Our beneficiaries continue to shape the organisation through their roles as paid mentors, trustees and Ambassadors. 

  • Awarded funding to secure office space in the community embedding us with other community providers and allowing our beneficiaries to cascade their skills via outreach work.
