Ugly Mugs

Sex workers can join the Ugly Mug scheme to receive warnings about dangerous punters for FREE. On the wall of the drop in POW displays warnings and updates from Ugly Mugs. If you are a victim of assault POW, with your consent, send an anonymous report of the incident to the Ugly Mug scheme in order to warn other sex workers. To go to the Ugly Mugs website click here.

Friendly Forensics

POW workers are trained to collect evidence of sexual assault. We can hold on to this evidence for up to 7 years in case you ever decide to report the assault. If at any point you decide to report the incident to the police, a POW worker will support you throughout the procedure. Rape and sexual assault is a serious criminal offence. We urge you to report incidents to the police but will support any decision you make.
