It is a London based non-profit organisation that aims to be:
INSPIRING - by upholding and defending women's value and dignity, challenging any exploitation of vulnerability or abuse of power.

TRANSFORMING - by facilitating opportunities for change through the provision of holistic care, journeying alongside them with compassion and understanding.
The Anawim Project works with women across Birmingham, including women in and around prostitution, drug addictions and domestic violence (as all are vulnerable to prostitution). The project offers support and counselling to those expressing a wish to leave their current lifestyle.
Anawim offers courses and activities in anything from art and craftwork, literacy and numeracy, mentoring courses, ICT, self-defence and life skills.
The women receive one to one support on the full range of issues which affect them; housing, benefits, domestic violence, CV writing, accompanying to appointments, attending court and social services case conferences.
The Trust Women’s Project is situated in Streatham Hill and provides a holistic, woman-centred support service for vulnerable women in South London with current or previous involvement in street based prostitution and/or the criminal justice system.
We aim to provide support that can meet every woman’s need, at whatever stage of her journey she joins Trust. Women selling sex, involved in the criminal justice system and/ or prostitution can access 1-2-1 support, the REALize group (a rolling programme for women using drugs and/or alcohol), drop-in sessions, a court diversion scheme for women appearing at Camberwell Magistrates' Court on prostitution charges and our street and community outreach programme. Women moving on from substance misuse, prostitution and offending can access continued 1-2-1 support and the Discover and Living It! group work programmes, which support women to reintegrate into the community through volunteering, training and employment.
Our specialist team can provide support around drug and alcohol use, domestic and sexual violence, children, offending, housing and benefits, motivation and self esteem, and health and wellbeing. Typical outcomes for clients include improved self worth, gained/maintained abstinence from drugs and alcohol, appropriate housing, stronger coping mechanisms and support networks, improved physical and mental wellbeing and better access to benefits.
