MASH helps women in street sex work to be healthy and safe. We also work 1-on-1 with women empowering them and build new lives. Each year we help hundreds of women. But there is a lot more work to be done and every day we help women trapped in poverty and addiction, suffering from violence, with mental health issues, anxious about debts or worried about where they are going to sleep that night.
Claire* tells her story ‘They helped me finish street working two years ago and apply for ‘normal’ jobs. I see my life differently; it’s a big change since I stopped working. I will NEVER go back to that work, it’s not worth it. I did it because I didn’t have any money, now I hope to get a job.’
How your support could help:
£10 could cover the cost of a hot drink, an attack alarm and food from our outreach van for a women working on the streets, along with a chat with a friendly face to break the loneliness.
£20 could buy materials for educational sessions with a teacher at the drop-in centre to help women with no qualifications improve their written skills and confidence.
£40 could cover the cost of a one-to-one counselling session for a traumatised woman enabling her to look to the future.
£100 could cover the cost of running the outreach van for a week which can reach around 25 women in the middle of the night.
£200 would allow our experienced Case Worker to accompany a woman who has been attacked on a visit to the hospital or to the police allowing women, some with little confidence in dealing with the authorities, to seek justice.
