The Jericho Road Project
Bringing restoration to women affected by the sex industry in Nottingham
A bit more: The Jericho Road Project runs in partnership with local churches and seeks to help women involved in prostitution take steps away from sex work and find social inclusion by supporting them with life skills, signposting them to relevant services, providing emotional support and helping them integrate into the community upon release from prison. Many of the women are addicted to class A drugs and have a variety of complex needs.
