Working with a host of organisations through the partnership One Ipswich, the council is giving prostitutes food vouchers and advice on personal safety. It is also offering housing advice to those who are homeless.
The council's chief executive James Hehir told LGC that the cost of providing the support is not of concern at this stage.
'Safety has got to come first and we will provide support to these women for however long it takes,' he said.
A drug action support team within the council is giving prostitutes counselling and moving them into rehabilitation centres.
Council leader Elizabeth Harsant (Con) said the murders of the five prostitutes will lead to a fresh debate on the way prostitution and drug addictions are managed.
'Government owes us a big favour [on this issue] and could do this by putting in more money to tackle prostitution and into getting more drug rehabilitation centres.'
