Established in 2003 as "United Kingdom Adult Producers" (UKAP), rebranded into "United Kingdom Adult Professionals" (UKAP) in 2019. The organisation rebranded again in 2021 into "Support Network for Adult Professionals" (SNAP), more information on this can be read here.
The organisation now runs as a voluntary, non-profit community interest company. SNAP brings together the UK’s Adult Industry and provide members from all branches of Adult Professionals (performers, content creators, producers, webmasters, etc.) with quality support, education and advice. The acronym SNAP is made up of four words we feel are inclusive and reflect the diverse make up of the adult industry we all belong to;
Support Network (for) Adult Professionals.
As what was formerly a predominantly producer-led and focused group, SNAP is now a more inclusive association. Our new makeup is more geared towards helping, educating and supporting people like you, who make a living from the adult industry. Our aims are to attract a more diverse demographic of members from a range of roles in the industry, in order to help us all improve our businesses.
SNAP membership provides access to a diverse and knowledgeable member base, with decades of experience in all areas. We help to provide advice for people in the industry, including important safety developments, mental health and sexual health issues. We can also help with information regarding copyright infringement, data protection, and important paperwork.
‘SNAP’s mission is to bring together the UK adult industry and its allies. We provide members with sound advice and support. Our aim is to protect and recognise the work of performers, productions and distributors alike. When Sahara was voted chairperson in 2019, there was a movement where we saw a lot of models using “content creator” platforms, and so we expanded our remit to include all people within the evolving adult industry.'
More recently we bought additional committee members on board and expanded again to include advice with things like our COVID Toolkit, regular seminars, networking opportunities, socials and awards. With future plans to bring out eLearning and other useful tools for our members to help support them. We can also support all of our members by providing information and signposting.
