For out of hours support you can visit our support pages which has a range of support options in the local community.
In November 2019, the University and Students’ Union ran a joint campaign around supporting student sex workers. The focus of this campaign was to provide information and an education for those who attended events and other sessions, and to vitally highlight support options available.  Following this, a working group at the University was created by Prof Teela Sanders (School of Criminology) and supported by the Standing Team, the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion department and the Students' Union.
