What Does A Way Out Do?

A Way Out is a charity which focuses on reaching out to young people, women and families who are experiencing multiple advantages, and aims to support and empower them to live a positive life. They do this by working with people to help them manage their trauma, get them out of difficult and painful situations and equip them with the support they need to thrive.

A Way Out work with a variety of service users including young people and women who are engaged with sex work, involved with offending, abuse victims, people experiencing homelessness or living on the streets and/or those who have substance misuse issues. Many of their service users struggle with multiple difficulties and traumas, and therefore they take a holistic and individualistic approach to their support.


What Services does A Way Out Provide for People in Need?


Liberty Service 

A Way Out’s women’s outreach and recovery project seeks to provide unique opportunities to facilitate engagement into services and establish recovery pathways for women aged 18 plus experiencing multiple disadvantages. Such women have needs relating to issues such as survival sex work/sexual exploitation, substance dependency, homelessness and domestic abuse. This women-only specialist service includes 1:1 support, drop-ins and structured programmes intended to help improve self-esteem, confidence and lifestyle choices with an aim to widen their long-term aspirations beyond such marginalisation and offer a way back into mainstream services and activities.


Pheonix Project 

The Criminal Justice Project is a new project commenced in 2021 and embedded in 2022. The delivery involves working in partnership with Changing Lives and delivering for Probation. The Criminal Justice Team is supporting women involved in the criminal justice system to move past previous offending and build a stronger future for themselves and their families.


The Psychological Pathway 

The psychological service and psychological pathway work across all projects. The key role of the service is to provide psychological support. The service has evolved over time and continues to evolve according to the needs of the clients and the organisation.


Blossom Project 

The Blossom Project is designed for teenagers and young women ages 13-24 or up to 25 if the individual has additional needs. The project aims to help these girls and women by providing holistic support through difficult times, and helping them to overcome their trauma. They help these women and girls to reclaim power over their lives and recognise the potential they have to live the life they want.

A Way Out’s family service supports family members of Liberty and Blossom clients. The women Blossom and Liberty support often have experiences of trauma and those around them are often impacted by this too. The family worker therefore works to support the family members, so they are able to access support in their own right. The service supports clients in a variety of ways including face to face, telephone and text support. The service works closely alongside other agencies (such as adult safeguarding, Harbour etc) to ensure the clients have access to the right support when they need it.


Rise Project 

A Way Out’s Youth project now deliver an early intervention-based group programme for 1 hour per week over a 6-week period, available to both Primary and Secondary schools across Teesside. Young people explore healthy relationships, how to express their feelings in a healthy way, how to stay safe online, identifying good & bad secrets, safe sex (where appropriate) and gender stereotypes. The course is delivered in an engaging way and is a safe place for young people to ask any questions and be themselves. Every 6 weeks the Youth team deliver the programme to a new cohort of young people, identified by each school as needing this intervention. As a needs lead service, they are able to be flexible and adapt to suit the needs of the students and respond to current trends in addition to delivering bespoke sessions at schools’ request. During school holidays the team have invited the children to trips and this summer they took children to a trampoline park, to the cinema as well as a forest school.
