Dorset Working Women’s Project (DWWP)

The DWWP is for all women who work, or have ever worked, in any area of the sex industry, and provides information, advice and support on all work-related issues.

The DWWP does not strive to control, reduce or promote prostitution but works to models of health promotion and harm minimisation, offering a confidential and non-judgemental service.

Dorset HealthCare University NHS Foundation Trust funds the DWWP.

What do we offer?

  • Twice weekly Street Outreach.
  • Home visits to Indoor Workers.
  • Condoms, newsletter (containing a dodgy punter list), information on safer sex, safer drug use, including clean injecting equipment and advice on personal safety.
  • Information and advice on HIV, Hepatitis C, Hepatitis B and sexually transmitted infections.
  • Transport and company to the GUM for sexual health checkups and treatment.
  • Weekly drop-in service.
  • Close links to other organisations dealing with drugs, housing, welfare or legal issues.

Confidentiality Policy

  • All information will be shared within the DWWP team.
