Help us change the conversation
We want to change the assumption that women in prostitution either need rescuing or could simply choose to leave if they wanted to. The reality is far more complicated for most. It’s about making difficult choices and compromises to support yourself and your family. And stigma and judgement that can make you feel lonely and isolated, and stop you from getting help.
Changing the conversation helps people see that women involved in prostitution, or who have experienced sexual exploitation, all deserve compassion, respect, safety and freedom, regardless of who they are or the journey they’ve been on.
If you’d like to help us, we’d love to hear from you. We always need volunteers, donations and other forms of support that provide opportunities for the women we work with.
We’re part of the Sisters Adoratrices – a global humanitarian network that has been supporting women involved in prostitution and women who have experienced trafficking for over 160 years.
It is our life’s mission to make sure that these women are valued, treated with humanity, and have the opportunity to achieve their full potential. We live this mission by offering the care and practical support the women need to flourish, freely and unconditionally.
Founded in 2009, Rahab works with women in London, UK. We’re one of 135 projects run by the Sisters Adoratrices in 25 countries. Together we support over 9000 women each year.
As we celebrate our tenth anniversary, we are looking to the future – and how we can reach more people and create a bigger change.
As part of this, we’re overhauling this website to create an online resource that drives the change in the conversation and makes it easier for people to support the women we work with. So that all women involved in prostitution, and those who have experienced sexual exploitation, are treated with dignity and get the love and support they need.
We are located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Due to the confidential nature of our work, we don’t publicise our actual address.
