Women's Services Manager (Doorway Project)

The Magdalene Group has been supporting women affected by sexual exploitation and coercion for over 25 years and has built an excellent reputation for building trusted relationships with some of the most marginalised women in society.

Women experiencing multiple disadvantage, sexual violence and abuse can face many barriers to accessing support due to stigma, prejudice and a lack of understanding of their needs. Our expertise in this field ensures we are well-placed to recognise the routes into sexual exploitation and to provide gender-responsive and trauma-informed support for women who face these intersecting issues.
