POPPY Project discussion

Thursday 12th June 7.30pm

Friends Meeting House, Eastcott Hill, Swindon

POPPY is the only support and accomodation project for trafficked women in the UK.

The POPPY Project was set up in 2003. It is funded by the Office for Criminal Justice Reform (reporting to the Ministry of Justice) to provide accommodation and support to women who have been trafficked into prostitution. It has 35 bed spaces in houses throughout London.

The POPPY Outreach Service works to improve the safety and wellbeing of women from all over the UK who have been trafficked and who are in need of short term support and advocacy.

POPPY Research and Development provides education, training and lobbying to raise awareness about trafficking and exiting prostitution. This area of POPPY’s work is funded by London Councils.

Sarah Stephen-Smith will be present to speak about the work that POPPY does.

Discussion and refreshments. Admission free.
