Support For Eastern European Workers

Within Leicester city we have an increasing number of women from the Eastern European community. Some Eastern European women have become involved in prostitution either through “free choice” or as a result of trafficking.
We are currently developing our service to further meet the needs of both E1 and E2 nationals. The Serious Sexual Offences Police Team fund language line for the project which enables us to communicate with women who have been a victim of serious sexual offences in a number of languages. Although this work is a relatively new service we are currently providing support around domestic violence, trafficking, obtaining financial assistance and accessing mainstream services.
