Georgina Perry

Georgina has over twenty years of experience in health service development and associated research, training and consultancy in both the UK and internationally. She is recognised for her leadership, advocacy and pioneering approach to meeting the diverse range of needs experienced by sex workers in the UK.   After 13 years at the helm of a specialist NHS service in East London, Georgina has witnessed on many occasions the culture of disbelief and discrimination faced by sex workers who seek to report crimes against them.  Her current role is as CEO for National Ugly Mugs (a safety and criminal justice reporting service for sex workers).  She is clear that decriminalisation is the only legislative model that can offer a safer and more just environment and is committed to working in partnership with sex workers and sex work allies to achieve this.
