Objectives

POW Nottingham is a non-profit, voluntary organisation supporting the rights of sex workers and those at risk of being exploited. We recognise and support the rights of individual sex workers to self-determination. This includes the right to remain in or leave sex work.

POW aims to empower our diverse community, focusing on ending violence and stigma through education, advocacy and multi-agency working.

POW aims to preserve and protect good health within the sex worker community whilst ensuring appropriate services are accessible.

Activities

We provide a diverse range of health and well-being services via drop-in and outreach provision to those involved in, wishing to leave or at risk of becoming involved in sex work.

POW Nottingham facilitates various satellite clinics for substance use, sexual health and other health and wellbeing interventions as part of their drop in and outreach services.

POW also seeks to affect larger societal change through advocacy and training, increasing public awareness and providing the tools needed to engage the local and national communities around issues of sex work and sexual exploitation.
