Supporting women who are sexually exploited; working with them to break free from the cycles of abuse, poverty, and addiction

What we do


We offer practical support, signposting and a listening ear.  So that we can encourage opportunities for positive change for those affected by sexual exploitation, including street prostitution, in Reading.

Our service values each client’s individuality, adopting a holistic approach, and supporting them in all aspects of their lives to help facilitate the best possible outcome. We achieve this by actively reaching out to this hard-to-reach and vulnerable client group, through night outreach. Read more

We are able to provide hot or cold drinks, some snacks, and safety equipment, as well as handing out hygiene packs. Our volunteers provide a listening ear and a friendly face when it’s needed most. We welcome people of all faiths and none in helping to support our clients on outreach.
