About us

We aim to provide a women-led support service for any woman selling or exchanging sex in Scotland.

Click is a partnership of organisations, working together to provide support to any woman selling sex in any way. We support women both through online outreach and one-to-one specialist support in locations across the country.

Click provides a forum for women involved in selling sex online to have a voice in developing and improving the support services around their health, safety and well-being.

We are funded by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport via the Tampon Tax Fund.

Women’s Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre (WRASAC) Dundee – Vice Versa

Vice Versa is a partnership project delivered by Women’s Rape and Sexual Abuse Centre (WRASAC) and promotes the health, rights and dignity of women who are involved in exchanging sexual acts for some form of payment. This payment may be financial but may also take the form of drinks, drugs, food or shelter. We call this sexual exploitation or prostitution, but you may have a different name for it. Vice Versa works on a 1:1 basis aimed at increasing safety and support to find routes out of involvement in prostitution, whilst providing specialist emotional support, crisis intervention, and practical support.

We also support women with a range of complex issues which may include substance misuse, trauma, domestic abuse, benefits, sexual health, housing and homelessness and physical and mental health wellbeing. Vice Versa works in partnership with Integrated Substance Misuse Service (ISMS) which offers support for opiate and alcohol dependence. We offer confidential and non-judgmental support within our support rooms, and offer crisis intervention, therefore an appointment is not always required.

Areas covered

Aberdeen Cyrenians

Aberdeen Cyrenians is a charity dedicated to supporting people affected by homelessness, violence and abuse, and other forms of social exclusion.

The Violence Against Women (VAW) project offers support to women who have experienced or are currently experiencing violence and abuse. This abuse may be in the form of physical, emotional, financial, sexual abuse and/or sexual exploitation and includes human trafficking. We are aware that some women have experienced multiple forms of abuse in their lifetime.

The VAW project strives to empower women to move past challenging times, through the provision of: one-to-one support; 12-week women’s group programme; and befriending support.

While other agencies offer elements of the service provided by the VAW project, this continues to be the only local resource to work with the full spectrum of gender-based abuse including domestic abuse, family abuse, rape and sexual assault, sexual exploitation, involvement in selling sexual activity, and human trafficking.

The project aims to help women to make planned changes in their lives, often at crucial periods of transition. All services are provided on a voluntary basis in recognition of each woman’s right to choose if they want to access the support provided.

Areas covered

Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire

Clinics and referrals

The VAW Project is open at the following times:

  • Mondays to Thursdays: 9am to 5pm
  • Fridays: 9am to 4pm

Women can self-refer or a referral can be made on their behalf by any agency. Initial appointments will be arranged as soon as possible, and all referrals are considered based on individual need rather than a waiting list system.
