The experiences of people who sell or exchange sex and their interaction with support services: lived experience engagement

This research informs our commitment to develop a model for Scotland which effectively tackles and challenges men’s demand for prostitution. It seeks to map service provision in Scotland, and gathers lived experience input on service experiences.


This project has been immensely collaborative from conception. The insights presented have been made possible thanks to the generosity of the participants in sharing their time and experiences, the support of the workers at specialist and mainstream services who facilitated, advertised, and offered guidance upon the research, and the experts through experience and through study, who provided constructive feedback at every stage of design and analysis.
