Re: Leeds - Basis Sex Work Project- sexual health spring updates
« Reply #30 on: 10 April 2018, 02:46:56 pm »
Remember here at Basis we can offer regular free and confidential sexual health screening. Screening now is quick simple with results back within two weeks, often before. If there is a positive result this can often be treated quickly within days.

We have access to appointments with a contraception nurse supplying free contraception including implant fitting as well as supplying free condoms and you can always buy more than we give at a reduced cost.

Our new smear testing service is now up and running so why not book an appointment or come to Basis for a no obligation chat.This is an important part of screening that is often overlooked and gives peace of mind.

The nurse will be here on Wednesday 18th April,Wednesday 9th May and 30th May from 1pm until 4pm for smear testing so why not give me a call to book you in .
We are always here to answer any questions so please get in touch.
My number is 07710304306 or you can email me at Gillian.Collingwood@basisyorkshire.org.uk

Hope you all have a good spring and looking forward to some sunny days.

Hi Folks,

As summer comes to an end, but hopefully no the sun, if you need anything just get in touch.  Her at  Basis Sex Work Project  We provide non-judgmental, free and confidential  info & support for workers in all sectors of the sex industry  including independent, agency escorts & other adult service providers, who live or work in Leeds.

We offer; free condoms,  sex health info, self testing kits for STI's,  a sexual health nurse  who can come out with me to visit you offering more testing and Hep B vaccination, fast track appointments   and  a range of contraception. We provide  info about safety which has been developed with sex workers, offer Ugly Mugs reporting linked to National Ugly Mugs and offer other general info & advice on the law and other stuff.

We now provide smear tests here in the Basis Centre or if you prefer we can book you one at the sexual health centre. Both options are bookable by appointment only so  text me or give me call.
Sponges (Gynotex)- we can give out a couple of free sponges each time we see you but now you can buy them from us at reduced rates cheaper than online
Condoms-  if you need more condoms than we can give to you for free when we see you, you can buy condoms from us at reduced cost.

As I say if you would like to make an appointment,  arrange a visit by myself, or if you just want a chat over the phone. My number is 07710304306 or you can email me at Gillian.Collingwood@basisyorkshire.org.uk

Best Gill, outreach worker, Basus

New!! Sex Worker evening meet up, at Basis Office, Leeds.
« Reply #36 on: 22 October 2018, 10:49:59 am »
Following some feedback, we have decided to open up Basis exclusively to indoor based sex workers, cam girls, independent escorts, agency girls, and women working in the adult film industry on an evening, the first Thursday of the month. This will be a sex worker led group, intending to be a safe space where conversations can be had, questions asked, peer links and friendships made, and peer support offered. I am always asked questions such as:
•   What’s the best agency to work for?
•   How do I start up as an independent escort?
•   How do I use online forums and advertising sites?
•   How do I do my accounting and finance?
•   Anyone know of good hotels to use? Where can I rent a room?
•   Anyone know anyone who wants to buddy up and work together?
Who better to answer these than yourselves? A sex worker led group would also be an opportunity to share your best safety and privacy tips , support each other, swap stories in a safe non judgement space, and meet like-minded folk.
If you are a new worker, or you’ve been doing it a while and feel you can help others, please consider coming. This is a sex worker led group. I intend to open up and provide cake only, Your space, your group! Please share.
5:30pm – 7pm Drop in
1st Thursday of the month (First one on 1st Nov 2018)
@ Basis Yorkshire, 94 North Street, Leeds, LS2 7PN
Tel: 0113 2430036
