We understand the many reasons why people sex work. We make no judgements about your situation – our concern is your safety and wellbeing.
The Adult Sex Workers Team has been supporting the rights of sex workers and those at risk of being exploited for over 25 years.
Our team runs a variety of services and projects from our building based in Hanley City Centre. We support anybody in the adult sex/ entertainment industry on any platform. Our services include specialist support for online workers, parlour workers, street sex workers, LGBTQ, and migrant workers.
We provide safety advice, emotional support, harm minimisation supplies, sexual health screening and other support services to meet the needs of our customers.
Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery
Human trafficking and modern slavery are amongst the most common crimes in the world, affecting millions of men and women. We believe everyone has the right to be safe and shouldn’t be judged by others.
We support people in situations where they’re trapped, coerced, or forced to take part in sexual activity. We create routes out for working with people and other services to challenge the stigma that surrounds sexual exploitation.
Thanks to our relationship with the local police, we’ve come up with a plan to support victims of assault when they’re not ready to talk to the police yet. This is completely confidential and won’t be shared.
