We work with vulnerable, hard to reach, women who are trapped by life controlling addictions and who are often involved in street prostitution with all the exploitation and danger that involves.


To keep up to date with our news and volunteering opportunities sign up below for our quarterly newsletter.

I would like to be a Secret Angel Secret Angels are people who pray for us. Once you have signed up you will receive prayer requests by email about particular needs the woman have.

We aim to journey with women, offering holistic, ongoing support in order to help them move forward towards safe, whole lives free from prostitution and drug addiction.

We start where a woman is now and help her achieve the next step. We will be involved for as long as she wants. For some that is weeks or months but for others it may be years. If a woman loses contact with us she is welcome back whenever she wants, there is no complicated referral process, a phone call will do.

We go to where the women are – on the streets working.

Our evening outreach team is made up of volunteers; who go out two or three times a week offering hot drinks, food, condoms and someone to talk to.

Our Support and Outreach workers establish caring relationships with women and provide ongoing support for as long as it is needed. Sometimes this is practical help and sometimes this is emotional help.

Often the support we give is the kind you would get from your mum, a sister or a friend – if you had one.

Daytime Sanctuary

Without an address or telephone it can be hard to find women during the day who have asked for help at night. In February 2015 we opened a Daytime Sanctuary called “Joanna House”.  This is a beautiful, safe place, near to where they work where women can come and access help.

Why only female volunteers?

Our outreach vehicle and sanctuary are female only zones for the protection and wellbeing of the women we work with. That goes for volunteers and friends of the women too. Many of the women we work with have histories of abuse and suffering at the hands of male abusers, it is in sensitivity to this that we only have female volunteers.

If you are male you can support us as a prayer partner and fundraiser. Sign up to our newsletter to find out more about these opportunities.
