Global Consultant: Briefing Paper on meeting the needs and priorities of young sex workers

Source (institute/publication)

NSWP is seeking to appoint a Global Consultant to lead the development of a Briefing Paper, with accompanying Community Guide, on meeting the needs and priorities of young sex workers. NSWP will consider applications from individuals based in or outside of the UK.

Young sex workers (aged 18-29) have diverse needs and priorities, and face multiple structural barriers and increased vulnerabilities. However, young sex workers are too often excluded from meaningful involvement in the development of policies and programming that affect their health and lives. The sex workers’ rights movement must provide a safe and inclusive space for young sex workers and amplify their voices to ensure their needs are fulfilled, their human rights are protected, and their agency respected.

Meaningful involvement of young sex workers is critical to ensure the continued resilience and sustainability of the sex worker movement. Sex worker-led organisations must ensure their programmes and services meet the needs of young sex workers, and involve them as equal partners in the planning, development, implementation, monitoring and evaluation, and management of programmes and services. This paper will also identify best practices for building the capacity of young leaders in the sex workers’ rights movement.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: Sunday 15th January 2023 23.59 hours GMT.
