Our top priority is the health and safety of our community members – and that includes those who earn part or all of their living in sex work or other areas of the sex industry.
Stringent laws regarding sex work often amplify unsafe working conditions, putting individuals at high risk of harassment and violence. Our newly established Red Umbrella program seeks to provide those working in the sex industry with a judgement-free space where confidential and individualized support can be accessed. The program operates Monday to Friday out of our head office in the City of Red Deer.
Our outreach worker meets 1-on-1 to ensure client confidentiality and provide individualized referrals, resources, and system navigation. In addition to individualized support, the Red Umbrella Program also facilitates a monthly peer-led support group that features rotating discussions on well-being, finances, self-defence, housing, and more.
