The impact of laws and policing on sex workers’ lives


ELP Logo

The East London Project is a research project to see how removing police enforcement practices against sex work could affect sex workers’ safety, health and access to services in East London.

Our project areas cover the boroughs of Hackney, Tower Hamlets and Newham in East London.

We will use the results to advocate for evidence-based policy and practice to improve the safety, health and well-being of sex workers in the UK and internationally.

We are a group of researchers that includes academics, current and former sex workers, members of sex worker organisations and sex work projects. You can find out more about us on the Team page

Our key partners are Open Doors (an NHS sex worker support service) and National Ugly Mugs.
