If you are in a relationship with a migrant sex worker, or looking to marry a migrant sex worker, Project X can help you with:
- Legal advice on marriage
- Legal advice on immigration
- Relationship advice and a support group of fellow sex workers
If there is imminent danger to the sex worker, please make a police report. Depending on the nature of the abuse, the police will take a report and then refer the worker to the hospital.
Please note that if the sex worker is not feeling well, she may postpone the statement. The importance of the accuracy of the statement cannot be understated. Please make sure that the worker is clear on the story and fully consents to making the report.
Please also note that there must be a translator present if the worker does not speak English. Simply notify the police officer and they are obliged to fulfil the request.
If you require further advice, please do not hesitate to drop us an email at [email protected] or call us at 6648 9593. If you wish for us to accompany you to the station, please also do contact us. All emails to us are kept private, which means there will be no police involvement until the sex worker gives her consent. Also, we respond to cases of abuse through our network of sex workers and other allies – providing you with a team that will respond to cases of abuse from a position of expertise on the industry.
Human Trafficking is very specifically defined in the law passed in March 2015. If you are unsure, please see the Statute.
If you suspect that human trafficking has taken place, please report immediately to the police and flag it as human trafficking. You may also make a report to [email protected]
Here are some useful indicators of human trafficking.
– Being deceived about the nature of the job, location or employer.
– Confiscation of passport and/or other documents.
– Forced into illicit/criminal activities.
– Abduction, forced marriage, forced adoption or selling of victim.
– Forced tasks or clients.
– Abuse of lack of education or lack of language skills
– Debt Bondage
