Sylvia Douglas, @msmissmrsglasgow Founding Director of MsMissMrs CICツset up the social enterprise in 2013 for all womenツto address self-esteem issues which suffer as a result of a difficult life journey.ツThe Get SET Programmeツwas written by Sylvia after her own experience growing up in care and all that followed. Her own recovery inspired her to write the ASDAN Accredited programme which has helped over 200 women to date. Difficult topics about who we are and how to relate to the world are nicely balanced with the quirky Empowerment Pants that fundツthe project! Not only does Sylvia work with women and sell her pants but she trains other organisations to deliver the programme to young women & girls.
