Red Umbrella Thessaloniki (RUTh) offers a wide range of services to adult sex workers (cis and trans female and male) and advocates for sex workers' rights. It is the only service provider addressing the needs and vulnerabilities of sex workers in Greece and operates a drop-in center, situated in central Thessaloniki. The beneficiaries of the drop-in center have access to HIV, HBV and HCV rapid testing, peer-to-peer empowerment and psychosocial support services, legal aid and referrals to other expert organizations, services and professionals. RUTh also develops harm reduction interventions and collaborated closely with our outreach teams, working in streets (see Streetwork Project).
The operation of RUTh is both community- and science-based, with the long-term goal to be led and operated solely by members of the community it serves. RUTh’s team has already core members (cis and trans female and male) who work or have worked in different areas of sex industry, as well as people living with HIV/HCV/HBV, and/or using or have used psychoactive substances.
All services provided are free of charge.
