Live Butterfly Project
Digital Butterfly Project

The Butterfly Project is a six-week programme, primarily aimed at young women and girls. The activities are designed to increase confidence, raise aspirations, and develop a sense of community. This project is delivered both virtually and face to face in schools and community settings. One to one mentoring is also available to individuals who are referred to our programmes by our community partners.

We offer The Digital Butterfly Project to all young people (both boys and girls). This is available on a self-referral basis. Simply complete the enrolment form to get started. Enrol Here

Individuals who are referred to the Digital Butterfly Project will benefit from three one to one mentoring sessions over six weeks and will receive a Butterfly printed resources pack. Contact us if you are a school or a multi-agency support worker who would like to refer a child or a young person to the Butterfly Project. Refer a Young Person Here

There are lots of reasons why a young person would benefit from taking part in the Butterfly Project. It could be that they are from an area of deprivation or a marginalised background, or they could be experiencing anxiety, self-confidence issues or just need some extra support.
