Emily Turner

Outreach & Support Worker since February 2013

I primarily work with indoor based sex workers (independent escorts, sauna workers, and agency girls) supporting around 400 working women in total. I co-ordinate the sexual health options for sex workers via fast-track appointments and outreach. I offer full testing, contraception & treatment options in your home or place of work in partnership with Leeds Sexual Health. I co-ordinate the Ugly Mugs scheme in Leeds and work with online sex workers around safety, liaising with the Police to minimise offenses or general harm against sex workers. I also deliver some sex work training.

As a Young Person's Outreach Worker I work 1:1 with girls and young women who are being sexually epxloited or significant risk thereof - building their trust, establishing a relationship, raising their awareness of the risks they are facing and how to reduce these through talking to them about CSE and related issues such as online safety, health relationships, sexual health etc. I also deliver training to other professionals in Leeds and elsewhere to other professionals and deliver awareness sessions in schools about CSE, online safety and consent.

Sadie Scheuer

Project and Outreach Assistant since September 2018

I support the delivery of the projects here at Basis through a mixture of admin work and direct work with service users through drop-in sessions and street outreach. On a normal day you will find me in the office working on all kinds of varied tasks for different parts of the organisation. I also play a large part in the campaigns that run throughout the year, so this tends to be when I get out and about.
