Josie Larder

Restore Project Leader
Josie has been with Restore for over 8 years now, starting as a volunteer and now working as Project Lead. It has been an incredible journey, with lots of learning and she is keen to ensure we continue to privilege the voice of the women we support in all of our work. Josie graduated from Derby Uni with a degree in Creative expressive therapies and tries to bring this into her work as she recognises the freedom and power of play and creativity. Josie loves asking questions and hearing the stories of every woman that we support, to ensure that we create bespoke and individual support, breaking any stigma or taboo around the sex industry. She loves baking, dancing and playing with her two young boys and spending time with friends.
