We offer free support for women

Tailored practical and emotional support enabling women to tackle their individual needs such as: safety, mental health & well-being, isolation, sexual health, homelessness, substance misuse and domestic violence.

We offer specialist support to self-identifying women and femmes in the sex industry including independent escorts, women working in massage parlours, women engaging in survival sex and victims of sexual exploitation and coercion.

During 2022, 168 women have accessed support around the following:
  • 1:1 tailored support and advice, including extensive exit support
  • Drop-in at a local cafe for a range of practical and emotional support and access to our local network of partnership agencies.
  • Support and advocacy to access other specialist services
  • Specialist support around safety advice for women in the sex industry
  • Wellbeing sessions at partnership drop-ins on the subjects of safety, barriers and enablers to change and self-esteem
One service user said, "I was a completely different person when [The Esther Project] got in touch those months ago. I am so grateful that you still want to support me and haven't given up on helping me."

Another service user said, "Was great to catch up and talk everything through, I just wanted to say again how helpful it has been to have support from you and the Esther Project. I think it's really helped me to move forward in the direction I want to go so thank you!"

One of our Drop-in Partners said, "It's so amazing to see how the women respond to you, I wish we could bottle it."
