Exiting Prostitution Good Practice Workshop

Eaves has provided accommodation and support to women involved in prostitution in London for more than 10 years, prioritising their safety, maximising their options and supporting those who wish to exit. We have delivered our CPD accredited workshop on exiting prostitution to over 300 professionals across borough-level statutory agencies and voluntary service providers. Our training equips delegates to support women who wish to leave prostitution by facilitating access to appropriate services. Training costs £160 (statutory agencies) or £130 (voluntary agencies) and runs over two days. We also offer in-house training to organisations or multi-agency groups, which can be tailored to your organisation’s needs.

Our next training session is scheduled for 25th & 26th of March. For more information or to book a place, please contact Julia Hilliard.

Understanding trafficking

Eaves provides bespoke training packages on identifying and supporting victims of trafficking to both statutory and non-statutory agencies. Tailor-made training packages can be provided from half a day to 2 days, depending on the needs of the agency/organisation. Eaves Poppy Project has been providing training on trafficking for over 10 years. In 2013 Poppy was commissioned by the Home Office to design and deliver training tailored specifically to frontline professionals. This training was designed specifically for law enforcement, prison and probation teams and health professionals. Feedback for the training was very positive with, 100% of attendees at all levels finding the training useful, 100% reporting an increased awareness of trafficking and 100% feeling better equipped to respond to potential victims of trafficking.

Eaves Poppy Project has delivered numerous training sessions to charities and NGOs working on issues of violence against women, criminal justice, migration and asylum and has designed training packages for Local Authorities. The training is CPD accredited.
