    Hundreds of thousands invested into local schools

Here Girls Can Festival impact at Kingstone High School, Hereford

Here Girls Can was introduced to Herefordshire secondary schools in 2018, using the national This Girl Can campaign by Sport England. The campaign, led by Active Herefordshire and Worcestershire and delivered with Stride Active, aims to improve health and wellbeing, boosting confidence and self-esteem, whilst encouraging long-term participation in sport and physical activity. In 2022 we adapted the delivery format to engage more schools and young girls, ensuring we make sustainable changes in physical activity levels.

On 30th September 2022, we delivered the second Here Girls Can Festival at Foley Trading Estate, welcoming +100 young girls to an alternative PE festival.
