POW runs a specialist project aimed at targeting anybody sex working from outside of the UK, to whom English is not their first language and who may need assistance with immigration status, education on their rights and any other general support living in the UK whilst undertaking sex work.
Our specialist worker Diana can provide interpreting services, has translated materials for workers from various countries from round the world so that they have accessible booklets around consent and their rights as sex workers within the UK.
Diana can help migrant workers with benefits, immigration status, housing matters, debt advice, support navigating government systems, signposting to services, legal advice, interpreting, advocacy and supporting with appointments to NHS services. Diana also helps migrant clients with integrating into the UK, social communities and networks and day to day living matters.
