SWISH - sex workers into sexual health

Sex workers

Terrence Higgins Trust offers free, confidential and non-judgemental support, advice and clinical services for male, female and transgender sex workers and escorts.

SWISH stands for Sex Workers Into Sexual Health. We offer a broad range of support, advice and services to people involved in the sex industry. We've been working for over twenty years with male, female and transgender sex workers (previously under the name SW5).

Our approach is holistic and non-judgemental to clients of all genders, and we aim to support them in both their short-term needs and long-terms goals. We encourage individuals to make healthier choices for themselves either whilst sex working or when wishing to leave the sex industry. We support the rights of individuals to work safely.

We also give information and advice on a broad range of subjects and work with many other projects to do so. Our teams can offer case management support over an agreed period. The SWISH partnership works with many other agencies and projects to achieve the best possible support and outcomes for our clients. Our clinics offer fast, free, friendly and full sexual health screening, with rapid HIV testing.

We aim to work entirely with you and for you - whether you want to stay in the business or if you want to leave. We can meet you in our city centre offices or somewhere in the community - all you need to do is get in touch.
