Transwakefield is a place for the transgender community of Wakefield, West Yorkshire and surrounding areas to come together to chat, make friends, share experiences, share advice and share events.
We aim to provide practical support to all transpeople, their families and friends. It is a source of information and guidance for health professionals, care workers, employers and anyone interested in transgender issues.
The group has up-to-date information on the treatment offered by the NHS and the various other private options available, and speak from experience of aspects of transition from coming-out to gender surgery. We can assist with practical help alongside hand-holding and learning to live in a new gender role, whether full or part time, regardless of your position on the gender spectrum.
We have access to experienced support workers who can meet in confidence with anyone who is confronted with gender issues. This could be the transgender person themselves, a family member, a G.P, health worker or employer.
Meetings are held at a secure location in Wakefield – to assure safety and privacy anyone wishing to attend must contact us first to introduce themselves.
Our regular support meetings take place on the first and third Thursday of every month.
They provide a safe space for transgender people to meet and share experiences.
For safety and security, we do not publicly publish our meeting location. If you would like to attend, please get in touch with us.
