A Way Out is currently experiencing an interesting and exciting period of growth and therefore is looking to strengthen the Board of Trustees with a further 3 members.  We are particularly looking for areas of expertise in Legal and Financial areas. 

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.

A Way Out has four distinct programmes of work, providing services to disadvantaged, vulnerable and socially excluded groups.  The Liberty projectdelivers an outreach, engagement and recovery service to adult women with complex needs, who are drug and alcohol dependent, socially isolated and involved in survival sex work.  The Blossom project works with young women aged 16-24 years, who experience multiple disadvantages, to build emotional resilience and to encourage positive life choices, with the aim of preventing young women being vulnerable to exploitation and abuse and progressing into survival sex work.  The Youth projectworks with children aged 8-11 years. It provides a safe environment in which children experiencing social and emotional difficulties can learn new skills, practise positive behaviour and build self-confidence and competency.  The Family project works with the whole family in an intensive and motivational way, supporting and empowering disadvantaged families to discover new skills and confidence and to build resilience to effect sustainable positive change
