Ruhama delivers training to a variety of different audiences across a number of different sectors relating to prostitution and human trafficking. 

Drawing on our decades of experience supporting and advocating for women affected by prostitution, Ruhama provides a diverse range of ready-made and bespoke training opportunities.

In the past we have offered training on the following areas:

  • Training on recognising the signs of human trafficking and developing trauma informed responses
  • Introductory training in relation to Ruhama and it’s services
  • Training for second and third level students in recognising the signs of sexual exploitation

These are suitable for professionals whose work may bring them into contact with those vulnerable to sexual exploitation.

We deliver free training to hundreds of professionals from diverse areas such as social work, migrant support, drug support, criminal justice, health, education, youth work, technology and the corporate world. We can also adapt our training sessions to multi-stakeholder audiences.

Sessions run throughout the year. To register your interest and find out more, email us on

Bespoke training

Ruhama delivers bespoke training and information sessions on prostitution and sex trafficking to a variety of  professionals. We work with your organisation to establish your particular knowledge gaps and training needs and tailor your training session accordingly*.
