Our Services

Ruhama's Support to Women Affected by Prostitution

The provision of direct support services to women affected by prostitution, including victims of sex trafficking, is Ruhama’s primary focus.

Our Support: 

  • Our services are confidential and tailored to individual needs 
  • There is NO fee charged and you do NOT need a visa to access our services
  • While we can support exiting, seeking to exit prostitution is not a requirement for accessing our support.  We are available to any woman in prostitution who may find our services useful

A continuum of support is offered ranging from outreach and crisis intervention to person-centred case work, development programmes and resettlement assistance.

Recognising that for many women, exiting prostitution is not a once off event but can take months or years. Long term support services are offered to women to help them take the first steps out of prostitution/towards recovery from sex trafficking, but also to ensure they do not find themselves vulnerable and at risk of re-entry/re-trafficking.

  1. Individual casework support and advocacy
  2. Information and advice about your rights and entitlements 
  3. Crisis accommodation in emergency situations  
  4. One to one and group, training and development opportunities

  7. Support into mainstream training and/or employment
