​Hannah Simnett – Founder of Cherished

Hannah is an award-winning leader, speaker and influencer, with a huge heart for young women and for every girl to know her true worth. Hannah founded Cherished in 2011, in response to her own personal experiences and seeing the attachment needs of young girls not being met.

‘I’ve always felt strongly about the need for girls to be understood and being a part of their journey to become strong, confident, young women.’

Hannah wrote the Cherished Course while she studied for a degree in Youth, Children’s and Community Work in Nottingham. She began delivering the course in secondary schools in 2011, to an overwhelmingly positive reception.

Cherished has flourished under Hannah’s leadership and inspirational determination to bring out the true potential and value of girls. We have now worked in over 35 schools across North Birmingham and the Midlands, have a dedicated team of 70 volunteers and continue to nurture the vision of every girl being able to access the support she needs to feel safe, seen, soothed and secure.

‘My heart’s desire is that Cherished allows girls to live their lives knowing that they were made with purpose and reason; they were created to be cherished and adored.’

Since starting The Alternative Path, I have met some amazing people, Hannah is an inspirational lady who through her own challenges is now through her organisations is making a real positive impact on young people’s lives.

I hope you enjoy our chat.
