The cost of living crisis is harshly impacting the women we meet in Manchester.
Right now we are seeing an increase in women coming to us in financial hardship.
Women who were just about managing are now in crisis.
We supported 111 new women in the first quarter of this year – our busiest quarter for five years.
Some are returning to sex work to pay their bills and put food on the table.
Women in Manchester experiencing multiple disadvantages are struggling to afford food, to run their homes and to make essential travel journeys.
