Red Files Welcomes RhED as a Sponsor!

Disclaimer from Red Files: Red Files does not endorse the services offered by RhED. RhED governance structure is not 100% peer-led aka not-peer only. This classes them as an organisation that provides services to sex workers. This means that not every person who has a governance role or makes decisions is a sex worker. Some people find this highly problematic, some don't care. It's up to you to decide what you need for yourself, and if RhED can provide a service to you in anyway. Keep yourself informed and know what all your options are.

It is also important that you, as an individual, exercise your due diligence when accessing services. This article is delivered directly from RhED and is not validated, vetted or verified by Red Files. This is your responsibility. If you need any help deciding if RhED is the right service for you, please feel free to get into touch. If you ever choose to access RhED's services, please let them know you heard of them through Red Files.

We encourage any member who have used RhED services to share their experience with their Red Files community so that we can all make informed decisions.
