What is A Way Out?
A Way Out is an outreach and prevention charity which aims to engage, empower and equip vulnerable and excluded women, families and young people to live lives free from harm, abuse and exploitation and to reduce life limiting choices and behaviour.
Our unique selling point is the tried and trusted outreach and prevention approach to delivering our services, as we strive to engage and extend our reach to some of the most isolated and vulnerable women, families and young people bringing the services to where they are stood on the street, in their homes, communities, schools or parks. Our aim and purpose is to prevent harm from taking place, or to prevent further harm from occurring and to help safeguard some of the most vulnerable people in this area.
For over a decade our flagship Liberty service have supported, advocated and championed the rights and needs of on street sex workers providing a forum for their voices to be heard and a platform to help bring about institutional change.
We are based in Stockton-on-Tees at a support centre called The Gate. This centre provides the base for many of our projects, offering a safe and secure place for women and young people to come and receive support and get involved in a whole range of activities.
