In March, Shanice Tobiere organised a residential trip for Female Hackney with Safer London and Nequela Whittaker from Street Girl.
The residential at K West Spa Hotel was suggested by Monique Smith from Female Hackney, and the trip was funded by Safer London.
Safer London and Female Hackney collaborated together on a service manual to help young people to access their services.
As well as the collaborations with Safer London and Nequela, Female Hackney members were also able to create bonds with one another, develop team working skills, and took part in an Escape Room activity.
Overall it was an amazing experience for our first trip away with Female Hackney!

“From the spa treatment to the lunch, dinner, and the workshop, it was a much-needed weekend! It was an incredible weekend! I’ve learned a lot about ways that can help both young male and females.”
“The weekend was a good experience to get to know the girls better in a different environment. It was interesting knowing the services that SaferLondon offer and also interesting to think about why young girls don’t access them. Getting away from the usual work place was a nice change and the spa and food was my highlight. I liked staying in the hotel and feeling treated! More time to relax would have been great but overall it was a good trip.”
“Overall, the residential was a great getaway and I would love to do more of them often as it was a way to get to know each other more and learn how each other are in a different setting/environment. I loved my massage, I loved the spa access and I loved the food.”
