Terrence Higgins Trust and SWISH

SWISH London is part of Terrence Higgins Trust, the UK’s largest HIV and sexual health charity. One of Terrence Higgins Trust’s five target groups are sex workers - who include many of the other groups which are susceptible to poor sexual health - gay men, black and ethnic minorities and young people. Additionally a fair percentage of our service users live with HIV (10 to 15 per cent).

SWISH works very closely with other Terrence Higgins Trust departments. We refer regularly to the counselling team - specific counsellors within the team see SWISH service users. We are also able to apply to the Hardship Fund on behalf of our HIV positive service users. In addition, SWISH has a campaigning arm and work closely with our policy and press teams to make sure the rights of sex workers are properly represented. We also provide regular training on ‘Understanding the Needs of Sex Workers’ and ‘Transgender Awareness’.

Student Sex Work Project

The Student Sex Work Project was a three year project funded by the BIG Lottery. The overall purpose of the Project was to promote learning and understanding about student sex worker needs and associated issues, and to provide an innovative sexual health service to a marginalised population through an ethical, empowering research led framework.

The project was led by Swansea University, in partnership with other organisations including Terrence Higgins Trust.
