A Former Escort said:

…..The jump between having a series of one night stands, to becoming an escort was very easy and an attractive way to pay off my debts. I thought I was in control, but the opposite was true!…..

Offering fresh choices

Streetlight UK is a registered charity, providing specialist, frontline support for women involved in prostitution and all forms of sexual exploitation, including those trafficked into the sex trade. Every woman matters to us and wherever a woman finds herself in  her journey  –  we exist to come alongside, listen and give practical assistance.  

To those wanting to exit prostitution, we are committed to helping them discover their intrinsic value and worth as individuals and sustain a new life free from sexual exploitation.

Combating all forms of violence against women and girls from a human rights stance. We share the interpretation of Article 6 (United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women, 1979) which positions prostitution as symbolic of women’s continued discrimination and inequality.

They told me if I didn’t do a line-up they would stab me. I didn’t have a choice. I did the line-up and they filmed it.
