“Sex Work Research in Wales”

A body of sex work research in Wales has provided the first evidence base for the development of community focused strategies and action plans, with six multi-agency research projects acting as a stimulus for change.  This unique body of knowledge has national and international significance. It has improved working relations between stakeholder agencies, informed the development of a diversionary pathway for sex workers to provide support to sex workers and to steer them away from the Criminal Justice System in 2012., established an outreach service into off -street establishments, and brought the voices of the community into the policy making framework. The work has led to the formation of the first Wales Sex Worker Safety Group.
