Support for Streetlife project to extend outreach work
Communities Secretary Carl Sargeant yesterday met with Safer Wales, to discuss their Streetlife project and launch their new outreach vehicle.
Safer Wales works with people who experience domestic abuse and sexual violence, street-based sex workers, hate crime and young people at risk.
Their StreetLife project protects women who are exploited through prostitution, working with local authorities, the NHS and other partners. The vehicle helps volunteers go out a few times a week and offer women support, advice and access to services.
Carl Sargeant said:
“I am pleased that with Welsh Government support, Safer Wales have been able to purchase a new vehicle. This has enabled Safer Wales to increase capacity through the recruitment of additional volunteers and deliver outreach work simultaneously across Cardiff and Swansea.”
