Ruhama has devised and designed a number of training courses which we deliver to a variety of different frontline sectors relating to prostitution, sexual exploitation and human trafficking.

The training is based on the needs of the frontline services. It is developed using the latest research, updates on legislation and policy, and all training sessions are fully informed by the service users of Ruhama.

Ruhama currently offers the following training options

‘Know Sex-Trafficking’ – a two day certified training course which focuses on recognising the signs of human trafficking and developing trauma informed responses.

‘Safety in Truth’ – A training session which looks at the harsh realities of the sex trade, the legislation which surrounds it and what active response care looks like for those currently effected by prostitution/trading sex for drugs/sexual exploitation.

‘Conflict & Crisis’ – a training session designed as a response to the war in Ukraine which explains the impact and the risk of sexual exploitation to women & children as a result of the conflict.  The training is also applicable to any conflict & crisis situation.
