The girl’s room is a virtual group for girls aged 10 – 12 years. The group meet each Sunday at 5pm-6pm via Zoom, providing a safe, virtual space to learn, be well, access support and feel inspired.
We also deliver the girls room in partnership with schools and youth centres. Please contact tough cookies to discuss if this is available in your area.

Meet the tough cookies team – Find out more about the girl’s room, our girls supporting girls peer leadership initiative and our Pretty Awesome workshops.
You Goal Girl – In the session we encourage girls to set, strive for, and achieve worthy goals for themselves. Goal setting is one of the most powerful lessons we can learn, and studies show that people are 42% more likely to achieve their goals when they’re written down. (Don’t forget your pen!)
Bounce Not Break – Whether it’s school, friendships, covid or life at home, everyday life can affect us all differently. Some girls find making friendships challenging or may find education annoying or hard. Covid may have you feeling anxious and worried. Whatever the issues you are facing, in this week’s session, with Kerry and Jane, we learn ways in which we can build our resilience and coping skills which will help us bounce back from the challenges we face
Doodle Art workshop – Did you know that doodling is a mental tool that can improve concentration, memory, creativity, and even happiness. Sam Warner, the very talented illustrator behind our Pretty Awesome artwork, joins the girl’s room this week to share her creative skills and techniques.
Writing our rights – Get your pen and paper ready, and join us as we put the world to rights! In this Sunday’s session, we will learn more about girls’ rights in the UK and will work with a female author to create our very own girls work manifesto.
Ask a stupid question day – no question is a stupid question and we will prove that, as Kerry and Jane open up the stupid question box and have a fun, friendly, open and honest chat about being a girl, growing up, puberty and periods.
All bodies are good bodies! – Even though girls recognise the importance of exercise many don’t take part in sports or fitness as they worry too much about other people watching and feel self-conscious about their bodies. This week is all about body positivity, skipping and slogan t-shirts!
Media Literacy – This week we are joined by Manchester Influencer Laurie Elle, who has over 3 million followers online, where she shares her dance skills and joins in with popular Tik Tok trends. Today we will dance, discuss, debate and analyse media messages and make some positive media of our own.
Cake Hun? – Baking at home is as popular as ever, and you don’t have to be super skilled to join in. Danielle, from Cake Hun, a quirky bakery business in Greater Manchester will be joining the girls room as we get baking. There are so many reasons why baking at home is good for you! It stimulates the senses, it’s a feel-good activity, cooking can help you relax, baking is creative and you get to eat the cookies.
Strong Girls Club – You made it! and you are now an official member of the Tough Cookies, strong girls club! But what next?
