Meet the team

Yvonne

Thanks for coming to check us out! I'm Yvonne and I'm the Team Leader of CLiCK. My background is working with women in various capacities starting with Community Education. I learned quickly that in order for women to engage in learning they needed support to work through their experiences of Gender Based Violence. Therefore I adapted my own learning to understanding how violence and exploitation impacts on our lives and affects our self-worth. I have worked in various GBV roles using a trauma informed and advocacy approach. I am dedicated to women having a voice and accessing timely and person-centred advice or support whatever their needs. I never cease to learn from women as I age myself! Joining CLiCK was a decision based on my passion to improve the lives of women, particularly for women who sell or exchange sex. My first job though is being a mother to two daughters, a god-daughter and a son on the Autistic Spectrum. I also care for my elderly granda in his 90's!! I love my animals and I'm also a Munro bagger - hiking keeps me fit. What can I say every minute is accounted for!

 

That's a lot of information on me but I am more interested to hear about you! Please contact us and have a chat...whether that is for support or just to share your views with us. I believe that CLiCK gives women a platform to provide feedback to key decision makers. Your views are important and can influence changes in the way services respond to women involved in the sex industry...therefore use this opportunity to be heard! The team and I look forward to hearing from you....

 

Laurie

Hey, I’m Laurie, the Women’s Worker for Click in Lanarkshire. I was always interested in helping out what you could call minority groups, which led me into a support role helping men, LGBT+ and BME people who were experiencing domestic abuse. CLiCK, for me, is a great opportunity to learn from women as well as help out where I can. I’m a cat person, I love watching true crime documentaries and I’ve recently learned how to knit. Not very well might I add …

 

Mel

Hi, I’m Mel! I’m based at Alcohol & Drugs Action and, for the last fifteen years, I have worked with women who use alcohol and drugs, women who are selling / exchanging sex online (as well as on the street) and supported women who have experienced gender-based violence and complex trauma. I believe in engaging with women on their own terms and encouraging them to make their own decisions. I’m passionate about reducing harms for women involved in the sex industry whilst helping to improve the representation of women in our society as a whole. I am proud to work in a service for women that is run by women.

My work is to make it easier for you to find the support that can help you enhance your wellbeing and safety e.g. housing, healthcare and anything else that helps to meet your needs. I can also be just that person to have a blether, confidentially. I used to teach yoga & mindfulness and I am passionate about wellbeing, in all its forms.

Audrey

Hi, I’m Audrey. Iam the Click Women’s Worker for the Glasgow and Clyde area. I have always been passionate about supporting women and have done so for many years. Mostly the women I have supported have been survivors of some form of gender-based violence or exploitation. I am a feminist, a music fan and a human slave to 6 rescued cats. In my spare time I am involved in animal rescue and rehoming and I fundraise for a cat sanctuary in India. I look forward to chatting with you.

My role is all about working with women to make sure CLiCK is producing helpful, relevant information – like where to find key support services in your local area and safety tips. I also work closely with Anna, the Development Worker, to take women’s voices and experiences to decision makers. Before this role, I was a research psychologist – studying social media use and wellbeing.
