Touching Base General Fundraising Appeal

Touching Base Inc

Touching Base is seeking funds to develop our capacities to assist people with disabilities to access the services of sex workers.

Touching Base believes that people with disabilities have an intrinsic right to sexual expression. This right includes having relationships, having sex, and to explore and express their sexuality and achieve intimacy with dignity and privacy, without personal or systemic barriers.

Touching Base assists people with disabilities and sex workers to connect with each other, focusing on access, discrimination, human rights and legal issues and the attitudinal barriers that these two marginalised communities can face.

To discover the benefit your donation could make towards someone with a disability check out the Client's Stories pages of the Touching Base website. There you can read about the difference it makes to some people with disabilities when they have gained access to the services of sex workers. There is even a story that gives a parent's perspective of the work of Touching Base.

How will the funds be used?

The funds will be used to support the work of Touching Base as it seeks to ensure necessary personal and systemic supports are provided to those people with disability who require support to access sex services.

For example, your donation will help us to:

  • provide our free information service to persons with disabilities on how to access sex workers who are specifically trained, experienced and/or willing or equipped to provide services to people with disabilities, and
  • develop and provide training programs for people with disabilities, their service providers and carers, and for sex workers and other sex industry staff; including in regional areas.

Key Areas of Expenditure

developing new flyers and information resources for all our stakeholders,
extending our referral database of accessible commercial sex services premises and independent sex workers, and
raising the public and professional awareness of the issues surrounding the access and provision of sex services for people with a disability.

Are donations tax deductible? Yes

Will I receive a receipt for my donation?
Yes, immediately sent to you by email when approved.
