Would you like to become a Supporter of NUMs work?
Do you believe sex workers’ rights are human rights?
NUMs Pilot scheme was first funded by the Home Office which ran from July 2012 until March 2013, since then we have relied on the goodwill of a small number of people and organisations who have given donations and contributions. However, our funds are running out very quickly. Other charitable funding (such as independent Trust funding) is extremely hard to come by and this is particularly true for sex worker-led organisations and those campaigning for a rights-based approach to sex work. Often sex work is just too controversial a subject for funding bodies in the UK to support. You can set up a direct debit today via JustGiving.
Whether you are running a marathon, jumping out of a plane or holding a coffee morning, you can easily meet your fundraising target and get even more support for your event by making the most of your email and social media contacts. For more information visit our Sponsored Events page.
Set yourself a challenge by running a 5K, 10K, half marathom or even a full 26.2 miles! If you’re interested in running or cycling with the NUM team, drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll keep you updated with events we’re involved in throughout the year.
Feeling inspired by Bake Off? Put your baking skills to the test by holding a coffee morning with friends or colleagues. It’s a fun way to spread the word about NUM and reduce stigma against sex workers. Get local businesses involved by seeing if they want to donate any stock.
Help fundraise towards our life-saving work. Join a local indoor swimming event or brave the outdoors like our team did ().
“The water was freezing, but it was worth it! I used social media to keep my supporters up to date with my event, it felt amazing knowing the money we raised would help fund such a vital project.” Elliot - Ulswater swimmer
