Caseworker Support

We want to let sex workers know that the casework team are available to provide support during the COVID-19 pandemic, whether that’s just a listening ear or a request for information on resources available to sex workers at this time. Financial issues, health concerns and isolation will all be having a huge impact on the sex work community.

We have 2 caseworkers working nationally and doing all they can to stay safe and well so they can be available to our members.
