Program: The Weekly: Drop-in at Peers
Vital Sign: Belonging & Engagement
Total Grant: $15,030.50 ($295 donor contributions)
Reaching up to 75 individuals per annum, Peers Victoria Resources Society will offer a weekly peer-led drop-in group focusing on a range of health and well-being topics and social engagement activites for sex workers. The project will leverage complementary in-kind community resources including volunteer supports and collaborative relationships with other service providers and local businesses. Peer-led drop-in groups are recognized as a primary intervention for sex workers as a stigmatized group. This small pilot project will be evaluated by clients and community partners and used as a basis for a more extensive daytime drop-in program.
