We provide training to front line professionals/ service providers who are supporting women who sell or exchange sex, aiming to raise awareness, support staff and help combat issues associated with stigma.
The following training elements are included:
Supporting women who sell or exchange sex
• Overview of our outreach service - The Esther Project (TEP)
• The reasons why people might sell or exchange sex
• Spectrum of choice
• Communication - how to talk about it
• Helping women stay safer
• Signposting and other resources/support
Our training can be adapted to suit your needs and is best delivered around the table with individual participation encouraged.
“I really enjoyed the training. Kath and Beth were excellent and I will definitely be taking the learning into my own work. Every area needs an Esther Project service!”
The Forward Trust, regarding our Online Training
“The whole concept of going into conversations from a position of care for the individual has just managed to rid me of fear of having these conversations without sounding stupid because of my lack of direct experience....so thank you!”

We are excited to announce that we will shortly be offering our extensive training session online via Eventbrite. This will be available to professionals who may engage with service users in the sex industry or at risk of sexual exploitation. The training seeks to increase knowledge and awareness of the sex industry (the routes in, the stigma involved, language and legal frameworks) as well as support with practical conversation tools.
