Professional Disability Awareness Training (PDAT) – ONLINE – Sessions Friday 2nd June & 9th June 2023

 Registration is closed for this event
Online workshop for sex workers with a minimum of 3 months experience in sex industry.

Professional Disability Awareness Training (PDAT) For Sex Workers

This workshop is exclusively for sex workers and aims to increase knowledge, skills & confidence in providing services to clients with a range of disabilities. Some clients (or their support workers and families) feel more secure organising an appointment with a worker who’s had awareness training or previous experience working with clients with disability.  

PLEASE NOTE: To be eligible you must have been providing sex services for a minimum of three (3) months.


  • Progress the concept of professional training being made available to sex workers and sex industry staff who wish to gain greater awareness and skills in working with clients who have a range of special needs
  • Assist sex workers and sex industry staff to challenge myths and prejudices they or their workplace may have regarding clients with disability
  • Inform participants of the diverse sexuality of people with disability
  • Educate participants on how discrimination may create barriers for people with disability to access the sexual lifestyles of their choice – including accessing sex workers and sex services premises
  • Inform on better practice for providing accessible services to people with disability
  • Inform on how to arrange services through a third party (personal care attendant, family member or friend of client, etc)


This workshop is being held over two x 3 hour live online training sessions.
