Betterness Manifesto CIC was founded in May 2020 in Hastings, East Sussex.

We offer in-school and community workshops for teenage girls and women, positive psychology coaching for girls and women online or by telephone, and wellbeing audits and consultancy for organisations.

Our pride and joy is our Betterness Manifesto Workshop - a one-day programme for teen girls from the most socio-economically challenged regions of the UK. We provide a comprehensive emotional resilience and female empowerment workshop, using a range of evidence-based positive psychology interventions.


We want to offer the Betterness Manifesto Workshop free to as many girls as humanly possible. We believe in girls' innate potential for greatness. We also know how vulnerable young women can be and how skewed their outlook often is - in a world that is far from gender equal.

More recently, we have started working with secondary school teachers responsible for delivering Personal, Social, Health and Economic (PSHE) education who also want support to address a number of issues that affect girls and young women.

We are currently working on an online version and a webinar series, as well as a series of local initiatives in our home town of Hastings.

We also offer 1-2-1 positive psychology coaching to teenage girls and young women presenting with a wide range of concerns or personal struggles including those around self-esteem and self-confidence, body positivity and self-identity, sexuality, anger management and anxiety control, imposter syndrome and bullying. 


We are busy preparing our introductory slide deck and several applications to large national trusts and foundations with a view to seeking substantial funding for our project. If you are an angel investor, funder, philanthropist, and gender equality advocate and you would like to know more about our work, please do not hesitate to contact our Founder at
