The Alliance

A Model for Scotland is an alliance of survivors, organisations and frontline service providers calling for a progressive legal model to combat commercial sexual exploitation in Scotland. 

​The alliance is made up of a wide range of organisations that share the belief that commercial sexual exploitation must be ended. A feminist and human-rights based analysis of the sex trade is central to this. Mutual membership of the alliance does not mean that organisations share views on other issues.
