The residential trip is an annual event run by us.
It’s a weekend away each summer, sometimes camping or using indoor dormitories. During the residential trip we run a variety of events, workshops, activities, sports and fun stuff.
The residential is for young women between the age of 14 and 25 who identify as Lesbian, Bisexual or Pansexual women, or related sexualities or those questioning their sexuality. New and past participants are all welcome.
If you are new to the residential and think it might be for you, or you have been before and fancy giving the residential another go, please get in touch with the Young Women’s Group here for more information.
Review of our 2019 residential:
In April 2019 the Young Women’s Health Project went on our residential trip to The Castleshaw Centre. We did a range of activities including a comedy workshop, a self-defence class and arts and crafts like rock painting, clay sculptures and calligraphy. My highlights were the French and Spanish workshops as well as singing in a group whilst someone played the guitar, as part of our pamper session on Saturday night. Every morning a small group went on a poetry walk and it was really special to listen to others read feminist poetry whilst surrounded by the countryside. We also played team games so that we could all get to know each other. It was so special to just spend the weekend with other lesbian, bisexual and pansexual women and I am so grateful to have had this opportunity. As a new member of the group I was so nervous but everyone was so welcoming and made the effort to speak to me. I have made some really good friends and I would highly recommend going on a residential trip – no matter how nervous you may initially feel you will be sure to make friends and feel welcome. – By Sophie
