Project Respect’s vision is for a world where women are free from trafficking, prostitution and sexual exploitation.
Supporting women in the sex industry – through direct outreach, practical assistance, referral, ongoing emotional support, social inclusion and a sense of community.
Empowering women who have been in the sex industry – using a strength-based, woman-centred approach, facilitating access to new education and training, and working to foster their sense of self-esteem and self-worth.
Educating the community, informed by women from the sex industry – to bring about greater awareness of the impacts of the sex industry and trafficking, and the prevent the exploitation of women.
Advocacy and activism, informed by women from the sex industry – to address the demand, violence and structural inequalities that maintain the sex industry.
Research on the sex industry – to inform evidence-based practice and provide tools for social change.
