THINGS WE DO:
SOCIAL ACTIVITIES AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
TRANS AWARENESS TRAINING
Our informal support groups are run on a peer to peer support basis with trained facilitators. We operate on a basis of mutual respect and have ground rules that are read and understood at the beginning of each meeting. There are not many rules but they are designed to help the meeting run smoothly and create a safe space for individuals to express themselves and speak openly about issues surrounding gender identity. The group is completely confidential.
Support Group Meetings:
Generate ~ Weekly on Tuesday's and first Monday of the month @ 19:30 - 21:30
Generate Plus ~ Meeting on the 4th Monday of the month @ 19:30 - 21:30
Generate Social ~ Regular meet-ups
