Knowledge•Action•Change are delighted to announce that the 2014 Paolo Pertica Award winner has been chosen by the panel for the Award:
Alex Feis-Bryce and colleagues
at the National Ugly Mugs scheme,
of the UK Network of Sex Work Projects
The outline of the ’National Ugly Mugs’ scheme and the results to date demonstrate clearly how it is both innovative and increasingly effective in providing protection and support for a significantly marginalised group, many of whom are dependent drug users. The links that have been made with police services and attempts to tackle well-established, and often ingrained, prejudice and antagonism, are a model for those working in other areas and we hope that the award provides at least some small recognition of this. Congratulations, Alex and colleagues!
