Another Way Service

Another Way Service

Sacro's Another Way service works with any woman at risk of or involved in sex work.

What does the service offer?

Sacro's Another Way Service offers non-judgemental, one to one support to women at risk of or involved in sex work. 

How does the service work?

The Sacro worker offers women support in areas such as: addictions, domestic abuse, healthcare, housing, parenting, cognitivie behavioural therapy and exiting sex work if the woman wishes to do so.

Women are provided with information on relevant agencies and services from training and employment to benefits. Sacro can help make referrals where necessary and support women to attend other services.

The service also allows women to anonymously report offences through the Ugly Mug scheme. Another Way has been awarded Star Status by the scheme for adhering to best practice.

 

Who is the service aimed at?

The service is aimed at any woman who is at risk of or invovled in sex work. Sacro works with women for as long or as little as they require.

How is the service accessed?

Referrals can be made by the Police and Procurator Fiscal as diversions from prosecution. We can also accept referrals from health services, social work, other agencies, other Sacro services and self-referrals.

If you would like to speak to a staff member you can call: 0131 622 7500 or 077 7265 2645.

We know that it can be difficult for women to access services during office hours. Therefore we provide various outreach services, where we can take direct referrals:

  • Women’s Clinic, 22-24 Spittal Street, Edinburgh, EH8 9PG. We will be there every Thursday between 5pm -7.30pm
  • NHS Harm Reduction Van, Salamander Street, Leith, EH6 8PG. We will be there every Wednesday evening between 9pm – 12am
  • We also provide support within the saunas in Edinburgh.
