PEER: Peer sex worker organisations are organisations where all those involved in the work of the organisation (members, staff, board/committee and volunteers) are current or former sex workers.

S/W-LED: Sex worker led organisations are organisations where all decision making is by current or former sex workers, but non peers may be involved in other aspects of the organisations work.

NON-PEER: Non-peer organisations are organisations that work with sex workers or on sex worker issues but are neither fully peer or sex worker led.  Non-peer organisations are only listed here if they are associate members of the Scarlet Alliance, Australian Sex Workers Association (i.e. their principles and practices are in general alignment with the constitution of the national organisation, and are not contrary to the human rights of sex workers).
