SWAI is an alliance of sex workers, ex-sex workers, health and social providers and researchers,
working together to advocate for and promote the health, safety, civil rights and right to self-determination of female, male and transgender sex workers in Ireland.
SWAI supports a human rights and harm reduction approach to policy and laws around sex work. We believe sex work should be decriminalised and that sex workers be allowed to work in safety without fear, judgment or stigma.
SWAI believes sex workers themselves should be at the centre of the development of policy which directly impacts upon their lives. SWAI is committed to supporting the participation and leadership of sex workers to advocate and campaign for their recognition, rights and protection in Ireland.
