Specialist Services for those in Crisis
By Hayley Speed , January 2017
Hayley Speed has worked in world of ‘crisis support’ for 15 years. In her research, which she developed as part of her Clore Social fellowship, her main question was: ‘What do male sex workers in crisis experience when they engage with frontline support services?’ She wanted to understand how charities respond to male sex workers who are in crisis and often feel isolated. She also sought to ascertain whether anything can be done to improve the outcomes for these service users and the Workers who provide them with support.
She outlines her findings in her paper, and the often unheard voices of male sex workers are highlighted.
