Presentation to Broadland Housing
01 August 2022
"The Doorway Team co-delivered a presentation on the Sex Industry in Norwich at a Broadland Housing Conference recently. We had much-needed conversations around the prevalence of sex work in Norwich, both indoor and outdoor. We also spoke about the specific barriers women that sell sex face when accessing services, particularly around housing and housing associations." Lydia Davies, Women's Specialist Practitioner

Georgie, our Chair of Trustees, very generously hosted our Away Day yesterday. The whole staff team - together with our trustees - spent a very productive working morning, looking at our forward strategy as well as our forthcoming 30th anniversary. A delicious spread for lunch was followed by an opportunity for a relaxing & social afternoon - with much hilarity in the swimming pool and a fiendishly complicated skittles-type game on the lawn. A glass of bubbly rounded off a lovely day. Great company in a perfect setting & the intoxicating scent of sweet peas!
