One25 has been working for 21 years in Bristol, reaching out to women trapped in street-based sex work and supporting them to build new lives away from violence, poverty and addiction.
We offer three key services to these vulnerable women: night outreach, an afternoon drop-in centre and one-to-one casework support.
The women One25 support on the streets are amongst Bristol's poorest and most vulnerable individuals. Most are homeless and acutely malnourished, and 99% are addicted to Class A drugs and alcohol: because of this, their basic safety and health are neglected. We see women who are deeply traumatised; first from childhood abuse and then from the violence of their adult lives working on the streets. Yet these women have incredible potential: many are creative, they show a great sense of humour, and are incredibly caring. With your support they can break free from addiction and abuse and achieve their potential.
You can make a real difference:
- £5 can give a lifeline: a freephone call to the outreach van
- £10 can give dignity, paying for a shower at drop-in
- £20 can give compassion: a prison visit from a friendly caseworker
