National Ugly Mugs (NUM)

National Ugly Mugs (NUM) is a UK-wide safety charity providing victim support and violence prevention services to sex workers, as a means to ensure greater access to justice and protection. We serve sex workers of all genders, backgrounds and modes of work. We offer a digital reporting and alerting mechanism to warn sex workers about dangerous individuals who may target them; online screening tools; and individualised support for those who experience harm from a specialist team of Independent Sexual Violence Advisors (ISVA) and other experts. We value those with lived experience in sex industries and work with them to conduct research, develop education packages to professionals, and participate in policy advocacy to change the conditions that lead to survival sex, gain rights and recognition, and improve the safety of UK-based sex workers.
NUM holds mental health resources to support sex workers who have been victims of crime or harm, or are experiencing other forms of distress. These include a directory of sex worker-friendly therapists and resources on grief and loss and suicide prevention.
