"Violence is not an Occupational Hazard" Reporting Violence
Violence is too often perpetrated towards sex workers, and yet reporting levels are extremely low in Scotland. If you experience any form of violence but are worried about going directly to the police with a report, we can support you in filing an anonymous report with National Ugly Mugs (NUM).
We will also do our best to provide you with any support you would like following such incident and support you in accessing other services for specialist support following incidents of violence and abusive behaviour, accompanying you to these services if you wish.
For more information about NUM please visit: https://uknswp.org/um/
Umbrella Lane volunteers can also provide advice on keeping track of alerts of "ugly mugs", supporting you to screen clients, and record incidents for warning other sex workers.
