Support Project in Reading
« on: 03 May 2019, 12:18:59 pm »
Hi all,

If you live in or work in Reading, we just wanted to post quickly to let you know that Rahab are here to support you. Our service has existed since 2005 primarily supporting those in on-street sex work around the Oxford Road, but our service is not limited to this support.  :)

Our main concern is your safety and wellbeing. We offer free, confidential, non-judgemental support. This support can look however you want it to, we offer:
  • Free condoms and lube
  • Free refreshments and toiletries on our outreaches
  • One-to-one support
  • Advice
  • Advocacy
  • Links to partner organisations (we work closely with substance misuse rehab providers, sexual health clinics and housing help providers, and have links with the council to help get the right support for you).
  • We can also distribute safety information, including NUM alerts and we're looking into passing on relevant intelligence that TVP provides us with for sex workers protection.

Our support is open to workers in all areas of the commercial sex industry, and are able to meet you somewhere you feel comfortable and safe. If we ourselves are not able to support you then we will be able to link you into other organisations that can best serve you.

If you want to find out more, have a chat with us, or let us know how we can adapt our service to best serve you, then you can contact me on 07443456598 (if you text first then I can arrange to ring you back) or email us at rahab@themustardtree.org.

If you work along the Oxford Road and haven't met any of our teams yet, then you can get in contact and we can let you know when we'll be out to provide you with refreshments, toiletries, contraception and a friendly face while you're out!

All the best,
Lucy  :)
