The London Abused Women's Centre (LAWC) offers abused and exploited women and children over the age of 12 with hope and help. This includes women and girls exploited in prostitution/sex trafficking, abused by their partners and/or exposed to sexual harassment.
Women and girls are provided with woman-centred, trauma informed counselling, advocacy and support in a safe, non-crisis, non-residential setting.
LAWC also provides support and counselling to family members of women and girls who have been prostituted and sex trafficked, including women and girls who are missing or disappeared.
This site is intended to provide you with information about LAWC’s services as well as educational information about woman abuse, prostitution/sex trafficking, and sexual harassment. Included, you will find a number of articles, handouts and reports written or approved by LAWC.
You can contact LAWC by phone to schedule an appointment for free counselling, advice and emotional support with a commitment to protecting your privacy. An interpreter will be made available through Across Languages if requested.
In your counselling session, you will be provided with safety planning and useful information about the abuse you are or have experienced. Child care can be made available during your appointment.
