The impact of Covid-19 on women who sell sex or are sexually exploited: new report

Working with Beyond the Streets, a charity supporting women who sell sex or are sexually exploited, the Joint Public Issues Team have put together a research report on the effects of Covid-19 on women who sell sex or are sexually exploited.

Research early in the pandemic by the Joint Public Issues Team indicated that women who sell sex or who are sexually exploited were likely to be a group that faced particular difficulties. Working alongside Beyond the Streets and their network of affiliated charities it was possible to use focus groups, interviews, and surveys to look at the experiences of the women they supported during the lockdown period.

The report looks through the lens of poverty and the lens of trauma, and delineates some policy suggestions going forwards.
