On 6 September 2021, A Model for Scotland was launched. The campaign is calling on the Scottish Government to shift the burden of criminality off victims of sexual exploitation and on to those who perpetrate and profit from this abuse.
The launch of A Model for Scotland received frontpage media coverage from the Daily Record and BBC Scotland, as well as coverage from The Scotsman, The Herald, The National, The Times, The Courier and STV.
