Access to Intimacy Final Report October 2023

Touching Base collaborated with the New Zealand Prostitutes Collective on a Massey University research project to deliver pilot aged-care related workshops in New Zealand in May 2023. One was for sex workers about working with older clients in aged care residences, and the other was training for aged care staff about supporting older people to access sex services.

This pilot project explores the feasibility of improving access to intimacy for residents of supported care facilities by providing education and training for sex workers in working with older and disabled persons and to staff on sex work and sex workers. The project ultimately aims to improve the quality of life of people in residential care by safely increasing the options for intimacy available to them. Link to final report
