The Mission of NZPC is:

The New Zealand Prostitutes’ Collective advocates for the human rights, health and well-being of all sex workers. The New Zealand Prostitutes’ Collective is committed to working for the empowerment of sex workers, so that sex workers may have control over all aspects of their work and lives.

Values of NZPC

NZPC recognises that sex work is work. NZPC recognises that sex workers should not experience discrimination and stigma due to their work. NZPC recognises the centrality of the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi. NZPC recognises that sex workers are experts in their own lives.

NZPC creates an environment that enables sex workers to remain anonymous when they access services provided by the New Zealand Prostitutes’ Collective.  NZPC is committed to working for the empowerment of all sex workers, and must involve sex workers in all parts of the organisation.

In striving to promote these values, NZPC seeks to complete the following objectives:

  • To involve sex workers in all functions of the New Zealand Prostitutes’ Collective. 
  • To access sex workers to ensure they have appropriate information to help them make informed decisions that will enhance their occupational safety and health.
  • To support sex workers to access services of relevance to their occupational safety and health.
  • To provide information, and support to sex workers that enables them to work safely and in supportive, safe environments.
  • To overcome barriers that impact negatively on the rights, health, and well being of sex workers.
  • To assist sex workers to find strategies to overcome situations that are detrimental to their occupational safety and health.
  • To provide balanced advice to people considering sex work, and to people who have recently entered sex work.
  • To liase with government and non-government agencies that engage with sex workers, and to assist these agencies to do so in an effective, culturally appropriate, way.
  • To liaise with government and non-government agencies on issues related to sex work that will result in better conditions for sex workers.
  • To provide support to people under the age of 18 who are involved in sex work to ensure that they have a variety of options, are able to make informed decisions about these options, and that these options include the ability to leave sex work.
  • To provide operators of brothels with advice that explains their obligations to those sex workers who are working from their venues.
