Church of England

The Girls Friendly Society in England and Wales (campaign name GFS Platform) was established in 1875, within the Anglican Church. GFS Platform has become a national and international movement, helping young women to help themselves by giving them opportunities to develop their potential, pursue aspirations, grow in confidence and to learn to value themselves and others equally.

We work with girls and young women of all religious faiths and none. We pride ourselves on providing a nurturing ethos and a warm, caring and accepting atmosphere, working holistically to meet the needs of girls and young women.
