Worcs Girls Can and Here Girls Can returns this March!
The local campaigns, styled on the national 'This Girl Can' initiative, are designed to get women and girls moving, regardless of shape, size or ability.
In February 2017, the Sports Partnership Herefordshire & Worcestershire (SPHW), in collaboration with six lead schools across Worcestershire and a range of sport and leisure providers, engaged over 1,500 women and girls in the campaign.
Schools across the two counties recently submitted applications to become lead schools in the 2018 campaign.
Why is this campaign so important?
Girls' PE is making the headlines. National research highlights the continued disparity between girls and boys when it comes to PE and sport and how this may affect girls' careers, mental health and physical wellbeing.
