Geographical remit: 


Abianda is a social enterprise that works with young women and girls aged 10-24 who are affected by gangs and county line activity.

We deliver one-on-one and group work to this high-risk and high-vulnerability cohort, who can be a hidden group in our communities, to ensure they feel safe to access services, and are free from harm and abuse.

We have an excellent track record in engaging with young women, working with them to develop their critical thinking and resilience; to grow their knowledge around healthy and unhealthy relationships, and risks for young women in gangs; and to move towards their Best Hopes or desired outcomes.


Our service - "The Star Project" - is a specialist and structured 15-session one-to-one service for gang-affected young women. We work shoulder-to-shoulder with young women to explore issues such as: healthy relationships; sexual violence and exploitation and other VAWG issues in the context of gangs; risk for gang-affected young women and those involved with county line activity; anger, power, trauma and harm. We also provide rights-based wrap-around advocacy for young women. ​​​​​
