The Well-being of Future Generations Act 2015 demands that public bodies take into account the long-term impact of their decisions on the people of Wales to ensure their future well-being.
This half day conference hosted by the Consortium for Sexuality Studies at Swansea University focuses on the implications of the Act with regard to policy and practice for sex workers in Wales who can be vulnerable and/or hard to reach.
At the event we will consider the evidence base in Wales which highlights a raft of health and well-being issues for sex workers, and provide an overview of the partnership work in Wales striving to meet the wide ranging needs of sex workers.
The impetus and ambitions of the new legislation will be outlined and pressing issues for sex workers will be deliberated. Representatives from sex worker services will also draw on their experiences to shed light on the current level of service provision. In accordance with the Act, we are seeking to define ‘well-being goals’ for sex workers in Wales and identify pathways to achieving them.
