TRANS* – FAMILIES – is our group for parents/carers who have children (u-18 yrs.) – who identify as Trans*, Gender Variant or Non-Binary, or who are questioning their gender identity.
Our TRANS* FAMILIES group had a first successful meeting in June 2017 in Ipswich- and meets on the 3rd Sunday of each month.
Parents and carers of Trans*, Gender Variant or Non-Binary children have the opportunity to meet together, seek peer support and share common issues and concerns that will assist them in supporting their Trans*, Gender Variant or Non-Binary child.
To support the attendance of parents or carers – Trans*, Gender Variant or Non-Binary children under 18 will be able to meet together, make new friends, take part in activities, talk about things important to them and have fun without having to hide their true identity.
