Commonweal and St Mungo’s have jointly delivered the Chrysalis project since 2009. Here we present the findings of our evaluation of the project that helps women exit street prostitution.
The evaluation report on Commonweal’s Chrysalis project has been published. The report produced by Prof. Roger Matthews and Helen Easton for the University of Kent confirms the positive impact the Chrysalis model and especially the Commonweal transitional flats has made to those women on the programme seeking to escape from a life of street based prostitution.
The Chrysalis project has been featured as one of St Mungo’s latest publications. To read more about this please visit the St Mungo’s website and have a look at our Chrysalis project page.
