Who We Are

The New Futures Project is a charity providing practical, emotional and therapeutic support to adults and young people at risk of, involved in or affected by sexual exploitation or abuse throughout Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland. 

We are a small team of qualified professionals including social workers, psychotherapists and ex sex workers who share a commitment to improve the lives of the adults and young people we support.

 Our work is trauma-informed and client-led.

We work alongside local statutory and voluntary partnership organisations to help our clients address their difficulties and identify, work towards, achieve and sustain their full potential.

We support adults who wish to continue in sex work whilst recognising that once our clients begin a journey of positive change, this often leads to an eventual exit from sex work.

Our work with young people prioritises protection and care by supporting young people to recognise abusive, coercive and exploitative relationships, to manage and minimise risk and to keep themselves safe.
