Street Sex Workers

SWOP Sussex (Sex Worker’s Outreach Project) is for women who live or sex work in Sussex.

We offer free, confidential and non-judgemental information and support.

If you are worried about confidentiality, click here for more information.

We have been supporting sex workers for 20 years and understand the many different reasons that women sex work.

We know that sex work is different for everyone. We see everyone as an individual.

You can use our service whether:

  • You plan to continue sex work


  • You are unhappy about your situation and want to make changes.
