we need to exist because, in Ireland & the UK,

sex workers must work alone to work legally.

thus sex workers are forced to be lone workers,

making them vulnerable to abuse and crime.

Slide background

criminalisation pushes sex work underground.

It makes it hard for sex workers to report crime and seek justice.

We help sex workers report crime and hold police accountable.

Slide background

sex workers can be the victims of hate crime.

We record these human rights abuses.

We are the only organisation in Ireland

engaged in this vital work.
