The Magdalene Group has been supporting people affected by sexual exploitation for over 23 years. We have built an excellent reputation for engaging those hardest to reach, whilst delivering well-run, evidence-based programmes to suit individual needs. Our expertise makes us well placed to recognise the routes into sexual exploitation, provide effective prevention, early intervention and services for those affected. We are constantly striving to adapt our services according to the needs presented to us.

We aim to build positive relationships to provide opportunities for the future.
