The advocacy service utilises the skills of Trans volunteers and other people in giving a voice to other Trans* & Gender Variant people and their families. When you need support our advocates will be there with you, speaking, at your request, on your behalf.

They may help with a range of situations:

  • Providing moral support for gender clinic appointments;
  • Form filling for ID documents;
  • Liaising with HR departments;
  • Attending housing offices;

For any work with schools, Gender Essence refers to SAIL as we recognise that organisations expertise in this field.

We are happy to accompany you to any appointment, to speak on your behalf if requested to do so, and to liaise with any agency.

We connot provide specialist legal or financial support but will endeavour to signpost you on to specialist contacts.
