“As a leader, I would like to add that the session was excellent, the girls have not been so well behaved in a long time and it was great to see them so engaged in a subject”

“Project Dare is an exciting project funded through our Building Communities in Coldharbour initiative. Project Dare may be small, however their outcomes and day to day management show just how much small organisations can achieve.  Project Dare has an extremely positive effect on the darers (participants) and their families in terms of improved physical and mental health, at a time when people’s relationships with food and their bodies are often at the forefront of everyone’s mind”

“Girls were really enthusiastic and engaged. They seemed very comfortable in sharing their thoughts. Girls who were normally very quiet were eager to take part in discussion. Lots of happy smiley faces! Really seemed to be thinking and getting something out of it. Presenters were very articulate, organised and supportive”

“A safe and creative space was created where every comment and insight was valued and appreciated. I was struck by how the participants felt able and supported to open up and share. No pressure was put on anyone, the emphasis was on personal freedom and expression, this facilitated people to explore and take positive chances within the groups. As the sessions progressed, individual personalities, opinions and experiences shone through. A compassionate, warm, and thriving environment. Excellent, excellent, excellent”
