Outreach To Sex Workers
Project Pearl is a new charity that Saint Philips Chapel Street has birthed which has developed following several years of outreach work with women who are involved in sex work in Manchester and Salford, many of whom are experiencing homelessness and struggling with addiction.
The vision of Project Pearl is to see women who feel trapped in the sex industry set free to step into their full potential for their future purpose in life in a world where sexual exploitation has been eradicated from both streets and screens. Our mission is to provide a first step Christian-led ‘home from home’ sanctuary and a specialist chaplaincy outreach service, all providing practical and spiritual care for women who are working in and affected by the sex industry.
Below are all the ways that you can serve with Project Pearl
Weekly Outreach - Saint Philip’s outreach to the sex workers happens on the streets and in saunas and brothels.
Pamper Afternoons - every first Monday of the month, from 3:00-5:00pm, we run a pamper afternoon at MASH for vulnerable women.
Banquet - In June 2022 we ran a banquet with the aim of rolling out the red carpet for those in need in the sex industry. 22 women attended, saying, “This is the best day of my life”, “I felt loved and safe”, “I felt so special” and “I can’t believe you did that for us”. We are hoping to run this as an annual event to bless those most in need.

“St Philips work in partnership with MASH to deliver pamper sessions for women. St Phillips attention to detail and care when they deliver the sessions has helped many women to experience an increase in self-worth and a sense of purpose.
Their contribution to the sessions has resulted in added value to our service. They bring some great ideas around delivery, always ensuring the women leave the session feeling happy and with a smile. Great partnership work”.
