Chrysalis Transsexual Support Group

Chrysalis is a volunteer peer led support group hosted by Lancashire Women's Centres, Blackburn and Blackpool

Meet weekly on Mondays (Blackpool) and Wednesdays (Blackburn) from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm (or later: we're very flexible)

A chance to meet with others, to give and receive encouragement, and to gain confidence. A chance to be heard and to share, in a totally safe environment.

There is no requirement to ‘dress’.

All genders are welcome, not just trans women. We also welcome pre-transition people, as this is the most vulnerable and questioning time. Friends and supporters, again of any gender, are welcome.

We are very informal and fun!

We give transitioning advice: What to do, who to inform, the law and you.

We also offer advice on voice coaching, electrolysis/laser/IPL hair removal, wigs, make-up, and much more.

Referrals available for:

Housing Homelessness, social and private housing needs

Debt Debt and budgeting advice and prioritising

Family and Relationships Family, partner and peer relationships

Substance Misuse Awareness Information on basic drug and alcohol awareness

Education, Training and Employment The barriers to employment, training and education. Advice with CVs and job searches

And many courses are available
