National Ugly Mugs Supporter Scheme 

Would you like to become a Supporter of NUMs work?
Do you believe sex workers’ rights are human rights? 

NUMs Pilot scheme was first funded by the Home Office which ran from July 2012 until March 2013, since then we have relied on the goodwill of a small number of people and organisations  who have given donations and contributions.  However, our funds are running out very quickly. Other charitable funding (such as independent Trust funding) is extremely hard to come by and this is particularly true for sex worker-led organisations and those campaigning for a rights-based approach to sex work.  Often sex work is just too controversial a subject for funding bodies in the UK to support. You can set up a direct debit today via JustGiving.
