About the group

The Young Women’s Venture Group was founded in 1993 to assist young women in all areas of life.

We offer support to women aged 16 years and up. Our friendly and enthusiastic team will give you one-to-one assistance or just be a friendly face you can talk to.

We hold weekly meetings for group discussions and one-to-one coaching in basic life skills and self-development programmes.
