Student Sex Workers

Please note the below reflects our pre-COVID situation – please see  our COVID info page for up to date info.

Basis offers support to sexworkers and/or women who are sexually exploited. We know that in Leeds this can also include students. Whether you work on street or indoor, we can offer a range of support as described on this website.

If you would like to speak to someone please reach out on “livechat” (we are online for chat in the afternoon) or call the office on 0113 -243 0036 or DM us on @basissexwork or get in touch via Facebook (office hours only but you can leave a message).

You can also find more a student sexworker toolkit: prepared by  a team of over 40 researchers, students, sex workers, and external partners and stakeholders concerned with the sex industry have come together to develop a toolkit that gives appropriate advice on how to support student sex workers and provide students who are involved in the sex industry with information regarding their work. The toolkits detail: the global and national legality of sex work and how these laws impact sex workers, advice and safety information, tips on how to work in the current pandemic and relevant local and national support services for sex workers in the UK.  We are grateful to everyone who helped develop this toolkit.

if you work in any of the 3 Leeds Universities and would like us to come and speak to you about our organisation and what support we offer or would like to support in sharing the above toolkit please get in touch via the office on 0113 -243 0036 or email: info-basis@basisyorkshire.org.uk.
