Salvos Cupcake Teams

Salvos Cupcake TeamsSalvos Cupcake Teams is the name of The Salvation Army's Brothel Outreach Program. Salvos Cupcake Teams exist to have a visible presence of The Salvation Army in legal brothels across Australia.

The outreach commenced in 2008, providing regular visits to registered brothels in Victoria, NSW, ACT and Queensland, offering support, referrals, information and access to pathways out of prostitution.

In addition to referral and information provision, the Teams provide connections for women with opportunities to equip and empower themselves with skills to help them find other types of employment and pursue their hopes and plans for their lives.

This includes linking women to:

  • Financial Counselling
  • Drug & Alcohol Counselling
  • Gambling Counselling
  • Domestic Violence and Women's refuge support services
  • Welfare support - food, clothing, necessities
  • Vocational Training opportunities, joy and employment support
  • Acquiring a Drivers Licence
  • Children's and group activities
  • Local community groups and support networks
  • English language classes
  • Legal and Visa related advisory services
  • Volunteering and other Salvation Army related programs

Salvos Cupcake Teams visit about every 3 weeks and leave contact cards and information to make it easy for women to contact us and access support services.

Since inception, the program has experienced significant growth and now operates in around 100 Australian legal brothels. Salvos Cupcake Teams have more than 8,000 contacts with prostituted women each year, and this continues to increase.

Women working in the sex industry in Australia can contact Salvos Cupcake Teams by emailing SalvoCupCake@aus.salvationarmy.org.
