Welcome to GFS Smethwick

GFS Smethwick offers weekly sessions and a space for girls and young women to meet new friends in a relaxed, girls-only environment. We host a range of fun activities including crafts and life skills, games and trips out.

Our programme of activities are fun, but ultimately designed to develop self confidence, life skills and resilience through being part of a supportive, non-judgmental group of girls and young women. We want every girl at GFS to feel valued and proud of who she is when she is at GFS. You can find out a bit more about our programme and how we aim to help girls, here.

Keen? Join us for our launch on 15 November! At our first session, we’ll have fun activities to help the girls get to know each other, including:

  • Celebrating who you are by designing your own GFS crest
  • Testing your patience with our “Don’t Buzz the Wire” game
  • Chasing your dreams by making your own dream catcher
  • Making friends while getting glitter tattoos

If you have any questions about the group, please feel free to contact us on [email protected]

Weekly fee

GFS is a registered charity, and does not operate to make a profit. Weekly session fees, or ‘subs’ help to pay for costs such as insurance, venue hire and resources. Subs are paid weekly to ensure you don’t pay for sessions that your child doesn’t attend.

The fee at GFS Smethwick is £2 per week.

GFS is an inclusive organisation and we welcome any girl or young woman that would like to join. The cost of sessions should not be a barrier to attendance, and GFS is happy to accommodate a break from session fees where helpful. If this applies to you, you will be able to let us know when you complete the sign up form.

GFS Smethwick is partially funded by the Sandwell Council of Voluntary Organisations. Thank you to SCVO for your support.
