Routes Out offers support to women who sell sex. The service is part of Community Safety Glasgow which aims to increase safety for people across Glasgow.
Routes Out understands the risk of selling sex and the stigma women can feel which can make it difficult to ask for support.
The Routes Out Service responds to the high risk of harm caused through involvement in prostitution. Our approach is based on the understanding that women are exploited in prostitution through a lack of choice of alternatives. We offer support to all women involved in prostitution, whether they have decided to exit or not.
Routes Out offers a wide range of services to women involved in prostitution or those who are considering involvement in prostitution. There is no obligation for women to commit to exiting prostitution in order to access our services. Our main concern is for women’s safety and we can offer harm reduction supplies and practical advice.
Routes Out Day Service has a team of five workers who provide practical and emotional support to women involved or considering involvement in prostitution.
The level of support is led by you, from a ‘one-off’ piece of advice or signposting to longer term one to one support from an allocated worker. We can arrange to see you at our Drop In at Robertson Street, our offices at London Road, visit you at home or a mutually suitable venue. Safety advice/planning, condoms, fast track access to sexual health services, advice/information and referrals to other support services, an allocated worker to provide one to one support to address any issues or concerns you have.
Opening Hours: Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm (appointments after 5pm can be accommodated if required)
Routes Out Drop In is open every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday night and provides safety advice, condoms, one hit kits, foil, emotional and practical support, access to our ‘Beware Book’ and hot drinks and snacks.
