Where we work

Open Doors is a clinical, case management and outreach service for sex workers in East London.  We deliver services in the following boroughs:

Hackney

Street:
The Open Doors team deliver weekly night outreach on Tuesday evenings (between 10pm and 2am).  The team go out in a marked NHS vehicle to meet and engage with street sex workers in Hackney.  The objective of the outreach sessions is to ensure that street sex workers know about Open Doors and the clinical and case management services we provide.  We give information on our weekly drop-in, and ensure that our clients have access to free condoms and injecting equipment if they need it.  These outreach sessions plus word of mouth are the primary gateway for most street sex workers into our services unless they have been referred to us by other support services in the borough.
