GB's Bristol District has just appointed a development worker.
Florence Dickinson started in the role last month and is jointly managed by GB and GB's Bristol District.
Here she introduces herself...
Hello, I'm Florence. I've recently graduated from the University of Bristol, where I completed a masters in Liberal Arts.
Finishing university, I knew I wanted to be involved in working in the third sector and so set about looking for a job through which I could channel my passion to advocate for women and girls, and tackle issues of gender injustice. When I came across a listing that asked me if I wanted to see transformation in the lives of young people by helping them gain respect for others, equip them with leadership skills, and raise expectation and ambition for life, I knew this was a role I had to apply for!
As the new development worker for Bristol, I am excited to witness first hand the transformative and empowering impact Girls' Brigade has on the lives of young women by imbuing them with gospel hope. I also look forward to the prospect of learning more about the needs of young people in Bristol and creating new expressions of ministry which directly respond to these needs
Last month, Girlguiding published its annual Girls’ Attitudes Survey - providing a snapshot of what girls and young women think about a range of contemporary topics. The survey encompasses the responses of over 2,000 young women, aged 7 to 21, from a variety of backgrounds across the UK. As it gives us an insight about how girls feel about a range of issues, emerging pressures and what they need to support their happiness, well-being and opportunities in life, it’s important that we listen to their voices.Read more
