Street Outreach

Street outreach sessions are conducted two nights a week from 6pm until midnight using our own outreach vehicle. Outreach is carried out by our specialist outreach workers, experienced volunteers and students on placement. During street outreach sessions, we drive around areas of the city known to be used for street prostitution making contact with street workers and providing information about dangerous individuals, guidance on safer working practices, distributing condoms and other sexual health supplies, clean injecting equipment and rape alarms. Our outreach workers give out hot drinks and food, monitor which women are working and deal with any immediate health or other emergencies. An important function of the outreach service is to provide a presence on the ‘beat area’ therefore increasing the safety of women working.
