Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
The Young Womens Project targeted young women & girls at risk of involvement in street sex work or early in their involvement. As well as individual support organisational partnerships were formed to address risk factors leading to exploitation & involvement in street sex work. A Mentor Coordinator matched individuals with screened & trained mentors. The Drop-In Centre was the first point of engagement for those working on the streets. It provided a non-stigmatising environment & assisted individuals by starting with genuine engagement, building trust, providing crisis care & the opportunity to form positive & meaningful relationships. Individuals were assisted to navigate the services & systems essential to breaking out of the traps that keep them involved in street sex work, such as homelessness & drug addiction. Staff provided advocacy & support, & introduced individuals to key service providers. Social Inclusion activities provided fun, social & safe recreational experiences. Participants explored interests & strengths through activities such as movies, cooking, picnics etc. The Greeves St. Social Enterprise offered women involved in street sex work the opportunity to engage in creative & productive activities. Participants, overseen by skilled volunteers, created boutique products sold to the boutique trade, on-line & at other public engagements. The project allowed for increased job readiness, improved pro-social interpersonal relating skills & increased self-esteem.
