Azalea's Drop-in moves to Luton town centre.
Azalea has re-located its Drop-in centre for sexually exploited women to our new Recovery Centre on Upper George Street.
The Drop-in will continue to welcome women caught in sexual exploitation, who suffer the associated poverty, violence and addictions. But soon, we will also be able to provide women with Recovery sessions to enable them to fully leave sexual exploitation behind, and build a life away from the streets.
Read all about our Recovery Programme here.
Since Azalea launched 10 years ago, we have connected with more than 200 women. Some of those have stopped sex work, but still struggle with unhealthy relationships, unemployment and past traumas. There is a need to offer support - to those who are ready for it - to learn how to overcome those barriers and flourish in society.
We are thrilled to have the opportunity to set up a Recovery Centre right in the town centre. Many volunteers have given sacrificially to enable the move to happen and to ensure the new Drop-in looks beautiful. Thank you to everyone for all you have done!
