Title: TLC - seeking providers to work with disabled clients
Post by: Marianne on 03 December 2019, 06:52:03 pm
Hi

The TLC Trust is part of The Outsiders Trust - a charity that works with and for people with disabilities around issues concerning sex, sexuality and relationships.

The TLC website advertises screened providers who wish to provide services to disabled clients.

We have been in existence for a number of years but have just had a total facelift. Existing members are re-applying now.

We are looking for new providers to advertise with us. It is free to advertise. You will be expected to provide ID so we can vouch that you are working legally in the UK.

On the new site, you will have control of your own profile in a similar way to adultwork. It's not as detailed as AW as we are on a tight budget but you can add links to your website or other advertising pages.

I don't think we can put a link in here but if you search for TLC Trust hopefully you will find our shiny new website!

Thanks for reading x

From the not particularly well hidden posting rules thread at the top of the board:

You may post one thread to advertise whatever you are offering, and in the Spamming section this can include website links/URLs. Links may only be posted once, and not included in signatures or picture captions; duplicate links or touting in signatures will be removed.

What a strange situation. Surely anybody disabled could either hire an escort themselves or there carer. That is what usually happens when i have seen somebody with a disabilty. But saying that i would only take a booking direct from the client not his help as i have had them contact me before but that is not the set up for me with discretion.

Hi Marianne,
I cant see disabled people myself but as you are a charity that does not charge escorts to advertise not some company out to make money I do give them the link for your website and i also post a link to TLC on my website. (btw is it the same domain or dio i need to edit the link) I think it's a great idea and saves them having to go through loads of knockbacks until they get a yes. It will also help the people who are scared to contact a provider in case their disability puts them off x

I agree with this, it can't be a bad idea. Besides AW asks for IDs in the most humiliating manner, at least these guys are well intended.

The problem is, women (us) are in a far more vulnerable position,
e.g. risks of all social and moral punishments from all directions ,
"once bitten..." applies. 
Some women have chronic illnesses/hidden disabilities, too.

It's really sad to see a site like this demands ID.

We don't even know who these punters are, would they be verified, too?

Have had a look and I’m liking the site but not the ID bit unless you do it with the service seekers too.

Adultwork ask for ID so it isn't a new thing & hopefully, TLC treat SW'ers a lot better. Just a question but how do you know these guys are actually disabled and not just getting off on some fetish. Do they have to give evidence of their disability?

I think there's a section in which you can write about any experience, or just be prepared to accept disabled clients.

Hi all

Just another reminder that there is a charity that runs a page aimed at disabled clients at https://tlc-trust.org.uk/

We do screen providers due to the vulnerability of some of the clients though this information is kept totally confidential.

I'm going to set up a thread [now in Q&A] where some of the existing providers might like to chat and anyone interested in joining might ask questions.

We also have a members area so that we can verify that (some) of the people who find you through the page are genuine clients.

Thanks, M

If people want to ask questions about advertising on the site, they can ask them here :).

We advertise that we have screened our providers to make it safer for disabled people, many of whom are more vulnerable - it's a deterrent to predators as they would not be willing to show us their ID.

If you think about it, you have to be police checked to work as a carer for people so an ID check is nothing really.

The TLC site has been running for about 30 years. Many providers don't want to see disabled people and many disabled people don't like having to ask that as the first question and get turned down repeatedly.

It is part of a bigger charity run for and by disabled people and they felt it was something they could benefit them.

My ID is logged within the system yes. But why should you need to see it?

We need to offer some reassurance to clients but mainly parents/carers/social workers etc that some screening has taken place. Some of these clients are immensely vulnerable  and the charity has heard numerous stories of clients being abused in a variety of ways. Asking for ID puts the predators off.

Thanks - they do so to cover their arses re legalilty. We do it to put of predators and ensure people's safety.

There is an option for client membership with ID and proof of disability - the idea being that you, the provider can make it a requirement that a prospective client join before they can book you so yes - we are trying to make this two sided.

We do prefer it yes as it's a whole different skill set. Can you suck dick round a cathater? - Can you cope with disfigurement? Incontinence? Do you have any experience of using a wheelchair or a hoist? What if your client needs the toilet during a booking and their carer isnt' there - can you hoist them from the bed, into a chair, get them to the toilet and back again? Even dressing and undressing people with muscle spacicity can be really hard work.

The diversity of disabilities means that if you have little to no understanding of the complexity of the possible needs then not really. I mean, you can't get a job as a carer without training and although we are not there as carers, in some situations, care jobs occur whether you planned them to or not.
