Condoms & Lubricants Umbrella Lane is a registered free condom & lubricant distributor in Scotland and can offer all preferences of Pasante sexual health products free of charge. If you prefer another brand of protection, we can offer advice on bulk buying and the best ways to do so. We can also talk through issues related to condoms for sex workers, ensuring we protect our health in any service we choose to offer. You can get these supplies from us by emailing to arrange to drop in to the office, attending our drop-in service, or coming along to the sexual health testing clinic.
Sexual Health Testing Clinic Umbrella Lane works in partnership with Terrence Higgins Trust Scotland (THT), to provide a specialist sexual health testing service for people in the sex industry of all genders. The clinic runs every last Thursday of the month (4-8pm) at the THT Offices on Succiehall Street, Glasgow. Sex workers can drop in to get tested by THT volunteers, who have undergone training with Umbrella Lane on how to provide a non-stigmatising, non-judgemental testing service to sex workers. The clinic runs alongside a welfare rights clinic (which you can also access) on the same night, and some other activities going on in the THT centre. This means that sex workers do not need to disclose their involvement in sex work if you do not wish and it wouldn't be assumed that was the clinic you are there to attend. Testing at the clinic is free and confidential, and you do not need to give your real name.
One or two Umbrella Lane volunteers will also be around at THT on these nights in case you would like to speak with a peer, or hear more about the services and community we offer.
