Hi there!

Turnaround provide confidential information and support services to persons working in the sex industry in Coventry & Solihull.

Although Turnaround's service is relatively new, our staff have over 30 years experience working with those in the sex industry and we recognise that whilst some people want to access our services others may not.

We can assure you that we are here to talk if and whenever you want to.

Many of the people we work with mention that they often feel isolated and would benefit from 'meeting-up' with others working in the sex industry.

In view of this we would like to facilitate a sex worker-led group session which can be accessed by workers in both areas. We envisage a safe space where peer support can be offered, advice given and friendships made.

To achieve this Turnaround are organising a coffee afternoon on Thursday 24th October at the Village Hotel, Coventry (Pub & Grill area to the left of the main reception). Pop in anytime between 12.30-2.30pm if you would like to be involved in shaping this sex worker-led group session to discuss potential locations, dates, times, advertising etc.

For further information please call Vicky (07714252927) or Lynne (07488 913591) or drop an email to victoria@turnaroundwestmidlands.co.uk.

Hi,

We are hoping it will become a monthly meeting, but will be guided by people who attend and/or want to get involved.

Hopefully see you there.

Hi Escortx,

That sounds great, it would be lovely to have your input.

If you plan that far in advance and want to let me know when you are in the Coventry/Solihull area in the upcoming months we can arrange a date that corresponds with when you are in the local area?

My contact details phone/email are on the initial post.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Vicky
