I set up Abianda in 2014 to change the way services are delivered to young women and girls who are affected by gangs. We have developed a unique model that is being used across England and in Europe. In 2016 Nesta and the Observer awarded us the New Radicals award. In 2018 Islington’s Integrated Gangs Team, within which Abianda is a key partner, was awarded the Children and Young People Now award for partnership work.
Our vision is to create an innovative, independent and commercial organisation to improve young women’s lives. The Abianda team is committed and loyal to each other and to our shared values of social justice, equality and working shoulder to shoulder with young women and girls.
We deliver services across London as part of a consortium funded for three years by the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime. Thanks to additional funding, we are now recruiting a third practitioner to deliver this service, alongside two Associates who have been in post for a few months.
Your role will be to deliver one-to-one sessions and advocacy support to young women up to the age of 25 affected by gangs and county line activity – up to 32 young women per year. You will work with these high risk, high vulnerability young women using Abianda’s unique model of practice.

The Abianda model is delivered by people with a commitment to working together with young women. If you feel you can make a contribution in any way, I look forward to hearing from you and working together to improve the lives of many young women.
