Murder of  Woman in Derby
Genesis was saddened to learn about the murder of Yvette Hallsworth age 36  in early April in Derby. Our condolences go to her family, loved ones and friends.  A  young man aged 18 has been charged with her murder.
Her death is another tragic reminder of how we need to work hard with partners agencies especially the police, locally, regionally and nationally to prevent crimes against sex workers. It is important there is a clear message that crimes against sex workers will not be tolerated.  Genesis is working hard to do this through it's frontline safety work  such as promoting safety at work,  coordinating the ugly mugs scheme in Leeds, linking in with  the National Ugly Mugs scheme, working with Jo the police liaison officer. We also aims to do this through our participation in strategic work with partner agencies in Leeds to ensure the safety of sex workers is a priority. Read More about the story here
