Womens Work (Derbyshire) – The Turn Around Project

Women’s Work was established in 2003 and registered as an independent charity in February 2006 to provide respite, advice and support to female substance misusers targeting those involved in street sex work. The agency has evolved to provide intensive support, information and advice to women and families with complex needs, targeting their services at those individuals affected by drug and alcohol use.

Women’s Work has been delivering a range of support services to disadvantaged and socially excluded women and has strengthened its role as the only local provider of open access holistic support and information for disadvantaged women and their families. The agency has built a sound reputation as a professional service provider, delivering tailored packages of support to women and families.

The Turn Around Project is run in partnership with Derbyshire Probation Trust to reduce offending among women and divert those at risk of offending. They provide help and advise to women within the areas of drug and alcohol abuse, accommodation, financial issues, health, family and relationships, skills and employment, attitudes and behaviour, domestic violence and abuse, and street sex work.

The recent expansion of services has meant that the organisation has diversified providing holistic services to a wider range of individuals primarily with drug and alcohol issues living in Derbyshire.
