Description of charity's activities and outcomes
St Kilda Gatehouse has three main activities:1.Drop-In CentreThe Drop-In Centre in St Kilda is the first point of engagement for those working on the streets. It provides a non-stigmatising environment, assisting individuals by starting with genuine engagement, building trust, providing crisis care and the opportunity to form positive and meaningful relationships. Individuals are assisted in navigating the services and systems essential to breaking out of the traps that keep them involved in street sex work, such as homelessness, drug addiction and family violence. Staff provide advocacy and support, and introduce individuals to key service providers. Social Inclusion activities provide fun, social and safe recreational experiences through activities such as movies, cooking, picnics etc.During 2016 the Drop-In Centre provided approximately 3200 meals and food parcels, 1100 toiletries and hygiene packs, 4000 needles, 2500 condoms, 400 informal counselling sessions for people in crisis and ran approx. 25 social inclusion events. The Drop-In Centre is open 4 days a week and supports 20-25 clients each day it opens.2.Young Womens Project The Young Womens Project provides a direct response to the stories and experiences shared by the women in St Kilda and the evidence-based understanding that experience of childhood trauma and abuse, family breakdown, poverty and a lack of traditional supports increases the likelihood of involvement in commercial sexual exploitation. The Young Womens Project works with young women and girls aged 12-25 years affected by commercial sexual exploitation. In addition to individual support and group work, organisational partnerships are formed to address risk factors leading to exploitation. A Mentor Coordinator matches individuals with screened and trained mentors. The Young Womens Project creates social and community connectedness for the girls, working toward prevention, early intervention and lasting change.3.Greeves St. Social EnterpriseThe Greeves St social enterprise offers women involved in street sex work the opportunity to engage in creative and productive activities. Participants, overseen by skilled volunteers, created boutique products sold to the boutique trade, on-line and at other public events. The project enables increased job readiness, improved pro-social interpersonal relating skills and increased self-esteem.In the last quarter of the 2017 financial year, St Kilda Gatehouse, with the help of volunteers, began preparations to launch a boutique op shop "Greeves St." from premises at 12-16 Belford Street, St Kilda. The primary objective of this new enterprise is to establish a source of sustainable funding for the outreach activities described above. This boutique op shop opened in July 2017, also providing a community hub where the women can engage with volunteers and work towards a common goal in sorting and preparing donated items for sales, while gaining experience in the retail industr
