Outreach Support Service

Outreach Service

The Gender Centre's outreach service provides specialised case management and outreach to transgender people who are confined to hospital or their homes, and to all correctional facilities within N.S.W. The outreach service is able to provide support to clients attending court matters within the greater metropolitan area. The outreach education service provides weekly Wednesday night outreach to at risk street-based sex workers in the metropolitan area of Sydney, including to the Great Western Highway and Canterbury Road areas. The outreach education officer provides referrals to specialist medical, H.I.V. / AIDS, education, legal, welfare, housing and other community services from Wednesday to Friday.

We provide our client group with:

  • Safe using and safe sex equipment, at the Gender Centre, on the street, or wherever the need is arises;
  • Health information, not just about H.I.V., but other relevant areas as well such as other sexually transmitted diseases, injecting hormones, safe sex work, and many other health concerns that transgender people encounter;
  • Home visits: If for any reason you would like us to visit you at home, please call and we will arrange a time;
  • Hospital and prison visits: Transgender people are often at their most vulnerable when in the hands of the gaol or medical system. If you or someone you know is experiencing any difficulties with these, or simply needs some support or questions answered, then this is another branch of outreach that we are here for; and
  • Information. If there is something that you would like to know about H.I.V., or one of the many transgender specific health areas; then please feel free to call me. If I don't know the answer, and nobody in the Centre does either, we will do our best to find out for you.

Night Outreach Service for Sex Workers

The Gender Centre also provides a night outreach Service to William and Forbes Streets in Darlinghurst for street based sex workers and private parlours in the inner-city and surrounding areas on a Wednesday evening from 6:00pm to midnight.

The first Wednesday of each month we provide outreach to Sydney's greater western suburbs for transgender street-based sex workers, and the last Thursday of each month we provide case management at the Kirketon Road Centre, above the Darlinghurst Fire Station, entrance on Victoria Street, Darlinghurst from 6:00pm until 10:00pm.
