The streets are dark, lonely and dangerous for women who street sex work in Bristol. The van offers a lifeline for women and a vital first step towards safety and a healthier life.
Women working on the streets face violence, chronic ill health and life controlling addiction. Our yellow van drives around Bristol meeting women where they are, offering love and support in a safe space. Van volunteers offer food, condoms, hot drinks, rape alarms and more. They build trust and encourage women to visit drop-in and caseworkers.
To women in crisis, the outreach van offers light in the dark.
"You guys never give up on me, always giving me a beacon of light in my deep times of darkness"- Nina
