We are so grateful for donated items that we are able to pass onto the women who access our service. 

We unfortuantely don't have the staff or volunteer resources to pick up items. Items can be dropped off at 29a Greeves Street on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday between 10am - 5pm. Please ensure items are clean and don't require mending. We don't have the resources to wash and repair items. Please do not donate men's clothing. Thank you!


Purchase a copy of the Red Light Dark Room book

This book was the end result of a project conducted by photojournalist Gemma-Rose Turnbull. For information on the project and to buy the book click here. All proceeds from the book go towards assisting women transition out of street sex work.


Run your own fundraising event

Host your own fundraising event to help raise much need funds and awareness towards street sex worker issues. If you're having organising a social event, why not give it an extra purpose. The event could be as simple as a movie night, a clothes swap, a dinner party... We will help in anyway we can.
