The Esther Project
The Esther Project is Yada's Outreach Service.
The Esther Project aims to:
- Increase safety
- Increase well-being
- Reduce isolation
We offer visits to self-identifying women in the sex industry in Coastal West Sussex (from Worthing to Chichester). These visits are discreet and confidential; they can be one-off or regular and at a convenient location.
We offer listening and emotional and practical support, tailor-made safety information, and signposting to other specialist services such as sexual health. We also offer spiritual support to those who would like it. We can offer support to women in all sectors of the sex industry, including independent and agency escorts, women working in massage parlours, and women exchanging sex for rent or other necessities.
Our free service offers:
- Condoms and lubricant
- National Ugly Mugs alerts and information
- Personal safety alarms
- Sexual health signposting
- Chlamydia self test kits
- Pregnancy tests
- A space to chat and be listened to
- Information on other local services
If you are a woman in the sex industry and would like to know more about our service or book a visit, get in touch here or visit The Esther Project website. We can have a confidential conversation over the phone, text or email, whatever you are most comfortable with. We will not share your details with anyone and you do not have to use your real name if you prefer not to.
