The UK Network of Sex Work Projects

is a non-profit, voluntary association of agencies and individuals working with sex workers. Supporting sex work projects, networks and academics to work together, share practice and learning across the UK and advocate to policy makers.  . The aim of the UK NSWP is: To promote the health, safety, civil and human rights of sex workers, including their rights to live free from violence, intimidation, coercion or exploitation, to engage in the work as safely as possible, and to receive high quality health and other services in conditions of trust and condentiality, without discrimination on the grounds of gender, sexual orientation, disability, race, culture or religion. The UK NSWP recognises and supports the rights of individual sex workers to self-determination. This includes the right to remain in sex work or leave sex work.

Big Lottery Funding & contributions from members has enabled UKNSWP to build up a collection of materials on sex work.  This comprises books, journal articles, research reports, project reports, leaflets and other materials: basically, any materials that relate to sex work. The main aim has been to provide a place where such a collection can be bought together and kept securely whilst ensuring that members of the UKNSWP can access all the materials in the collection.  This collection is the first of its kind in the UK.
