Sex Workers' Rights Card for Indoor Working

Prostitution is legal in England and Wales, but many of the activities surrounding the exchange of sex for money or other goods are criminal offences. Keep your activities low-key to avoid attracting attention and try to maintain good relations with local residents.

This card contains a summary of some of the main offences involved in indoor sex work, and your rights when dealing with the police. Release can refer you to a solicitor and give you free legal advice. Local law centres are also useful if you don’t qualify for legal aid.
