Beyond the Streets is a UK charity working to end sexual exploitation.

Their vision is to see a world where people are free from exploitation, and where those involved in prostitution have the option to pursue alternatives, free from constraints such as drug use, abusive relationships and poverty.

Beyond the streets seeks to help people by not just simply treating them as a passive victim but empowering them as a person with respect and dignity, helping them with life beyond prostitution. They look to give genuine and attainable alternatives for those exploited by prostitution and sex trafficking.

 The sex industry is an ever expanding arena for sexual exploitation. Street prostitution, off-street prostitution, sex tourism, strip clubs, lap dancing, international and domestic trafficking and pornography are some of the venues where sexual exploitation against women, children and men happen every day. We are working towards seeing an end to the sexual exploitation of those in prostitution, many of whom have been trafficked. They believe that sex trafficking and prostitution overlap in fundamental ways and that there is an inequality of social and economic power between those exploited and those who exploit. The sex industry is a theatre for gender power dynamics to take the stage.

It is unknown how many people are working in prostitution in the UK – but what we do know is that it affects people in every town and city in the UK.
