Since 2012, Lancashire LGBT has worked closely with trans people in Lancashire and, through regular consultation, developed a strong awareness of their needs.
In order to provide specific support for trans people, we have introduced a Trans* Support project which welcomes anyone on the trans spectrum including non-binary people and those questioning their gender identity.
Through the Trans* Support project, we can offer:
Befriending Services – For trans people who may be feeling socially isolated or requiring peer support, Lancashire LGBT can provide a befriending contact who can regularly stay in touch via telephone or e-mail.
Practical Workshops – A range of specialist practical workshops for trans people including confidence and self-esteem building, and how to navigate the process of transition
Annual Trans Residential Weekend– Held every October, this is a weekend away with opportunities to meet other trans people, take part in workshops, learn and relax in a safe, confidential environment.
Find out more about the Trans Support Service by taking a look at our leaflet (PDF).
If you would like to be involved in any of these activities or have any questions to ask, please call us on our Information and Support Helpline or contact us using the form below and we would be happy to tell you more!
