Provides a safe meeting place for transgender and/or gender variant people where they can discuss any problems with work, home, transphobic hate crime, bullying etc

We hold two meetings every month for trans people over the age of 18 with either a speaker or as social evenings and also have one meeting a month for trans children, teens and the parents of trans kids.

See our website ( for details of meetings.

We also have online forums where you can discuss in safety aspects of your transition and we might have the solution to any problems that you might be having. There are forums for general chat but with separate forums for trans men and trans women. There are also special sections purely for the partners of transgender people where you can discuss your feelings with other partners in complete privacy - ordinary members do not have access to this section. We also have special sections for the parents of transgender children and trans youth and also for trans youth and their parents. These latter forums are solely for the use of the named people - nobody else will be allowed to join these sections

We also have a telephone Helpline/Support Line which can be reached on 07476 15 17 17 or 01803 404500.  These lines are open on a Sunday, Monday and Wednesday evening from 6pm until midnight (except the first Wednesday of every month).  You may send a text message to the mobile number at any time and we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible.
