TransWirral is an organisation for transsexual & intersex people, including family & youth support, who reside in NW England.
TransWirral provides a support for transsexual individuals helping them overcome their sense of isolation and providing educational and social opportunities.
TransWirral also gives support to those who have a drug or alcohol problem and works closely with the NHS at the Harm Reduction Unit at St. Catherine's Hospital in Tranmere.
We are happy to meet transsexual people, and their significant others, to talk with and guide them on the many steps they will have to face. Through this we hope that they will gain a better understanding of what being transsexual means for their lives.
Our other goals are just as important; we reach out to our closeted transsexual sisters and brothers. We let them know that they are not alone and we are here to help and support them.
Finally, we try to educate the public and professionals that deal with the transsexual community. Many have misconceptions about transsexuals. This last goal includes actively supporting movements to protect your rights as individuals. At the meeting, you are accepted for who you are and who you want to become.
