Sex Worker Welcome Training

Please note: Our capacity to deliver the Sex Worker Welcome Training is limited. We may not be able to offer it right away, but always feel free to get in touch with us if you are interested. We will add you to our waiting list.

SWAN Waterloo seeks to confront stigma against sex work head on.

Part of this anti-stigma work involves providing our Sex Worker Welcome Training to diverse groups, agencies, and organizations in Waterloo Region.

Our training is ideal for health and social service personnel who provide services for the general public or for sex workers in particular.

Training consists of a discussion facilitated by a sex worker. Beforehand, participants are expected to read The Toolbox: What Works for Sex Workers (available below) and prepare questions.

If you would like a SWAN member to conduct a live training with your organization, please contact us.

Required reading

The Toolbox: What Works for Sex Workers is an initiative of POWER (Prostitutes of Ottawa-Gatineau Work, Educate and Resist), in collaboration with the AIDS Committee of Ottawa and with the support of the Ontario HIV/AIDS Treatment Network.
