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 women 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 2021, 211 women have accessed support around the following:
  • Drop-in at a local cafe for a range of practical and emotional support and access to our local network of partnership agencies.
  • 1:1 tailored support and advice, including extensive exit support
  • 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 risk, stigma, safety, barriers and enablers to change and self-esteem
One service user said, “You just seem to care about me as a person. I haven't been able to engage with many other agencies beforehand because they don't seem to see me.”

One partnership agency said, “We absolutely love having (outreach worker’s name) around, and our service users really enjoy TEP sessions and always take a lot of gained knowledge and new taught skill from those.”
