The Clare Project

The Clare Project is a self supporting group based in Brighton and Hove open to anyone wishing to explore issues around gender identity.

Our main activity is our weekly DROP-IN every Tuesday, which aims to provide a safe and confidential place for people to meet with others who share their life experiences, and find information, support and companionship. A facilitator and a psychotherapist are at the drop-in each Tuesday.

Whilst the group is mainly attended by transgender, transsexual and gender dysphoric people, we aim to be all-inclusive as we recognise the complexities surrounding the issue of gender identity. We have no religious affiliation.

The drop-in is from 2.30 to 5.30pm every Tuesday, except the first Tuesday of each month.

After the 2.30-5.30 drop-in, we regularly go to the Marlborough pub at 4 Princes St, Brighton from about 5.45pm to 8pm so, if you can't make the afternoon meeting, join us there. Look for the Clare Bear.

Our drop-in meeting on the first Tuesday of each month takes place from 5pm to 7.30pm – and from 7.30 onwards everyone is welcome to join us in a visit to a local pub or restaurant for a meal. This monthly social event is called Meet&Eat.
