|What we do||St Mungo’s knows from its own research, “Rebuilding Shattered Lives”, that homeless women are significantly more likely than homeless men to be involved in prostitution. Around a quarter of St Mungo’s female clients have been involved in prostitution, compared to 2% of male clients. Over a third of our female clients who have slept rough have been involved in prostitution. One of our most pioneering projects is the Chrysalis Project. This is a pioneering housing based model for particularly vulnerable homeless women involved in street prostitution in South London. A joint enterprise between Commonweal Housing St Mungo’s and Lambeth Council, it provides high quality accommodation and support. The Chrysalis Project is separated over multiple sites including a 17-bed hostel which is divided into assessment, stabilisation and move-on clusters for clients at different stages of their cycle of change. Clients within this service are sexually exploited women who use crack and other substances problematically. Many clients in this service also present with mental health problems including personality disorder. Women usually enter this service in crisis. Most women in the service have or have had a significant relationship with an abusive man and/or have been involved in prostitution. Phase One (Palace Road – 17 bed spaces + 1 emergency bed space): Security, stability and intensive support: A 17 bed women only St Mungo’s high support project provides secure supported accommodation, designed to enable women to address enduring problems such as substance use issues. Specially trained psychotherapists provide therapy sessions and work with project staff to support clients to deal with traumatic experiences, such as having children taken into care, being assaulted or experiencing childhood neglect. Phase Two (St Gothards – 8 bedsits): Moving towards independence: Clients move into a St Mungo’s semi-independent project, to further develop skills that will help them to sustain independent living. Support remains available from key workers for these clients, who are assisted to build links with local services and develop social networks in the wider community.|
