Imperial Girls Can
Imperial Girls Can. What can you do?
Imperial Girls Can works alongside Sport England and BUCS to bring the This Girl Can campaign to Imperial. There are loads of opportunities for girls to get involved with sport and physical activities and we're here to help break down the barriers to participation.
"This Girl Can is a celebration of active women who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it, how they look or even how red their face gets. Funded by The National Lottery and developed by Sport England, we want to help women overcome the fear of judgement that is stopping too many women and girls from joining in." – This Girl Can campaign
