Our vision is to inspire young women and challenge them to break down barriers, building on their achievements to become independent women.
Established in 1875 within the Anglican church, GFS has become an organisation assisting girls and young women to help themselves by giving them opportunities to pursue their aspirations, grow in confidence and learn to value themselves and others.
In England and Wales we work with girls and young women of all faiths and none. We pride ourselves on providing a nurturing and supportive environment where young women develop their potential.
The Christian faith has influenced the organisation’s values, although these are shared by other faiths and organisations working with children and young people. Values of trust, self-worth, justice and stewardship underpin the way we work with girls and young women
