Type: Grant
Purpose: In concert with experiential women, this project will develop a tool with which British Columbia community organizations and governments can support sex workers in their transition to recovery. Approximately 150 women will be helped to exit the sex trade and reintegrate into mainstream employment and the social life of their communities. The Comprehensive Resource Handbook to Support Sex Workers and Sexually Exploited Youth will be piloted in six communities across the province where some of the most at-risk women and girls are. The handbook and enhanced service model will be shared with other jurisdictions in order to increase access to support services for sex workers across Canada.
