The Trans Advocacy Service at LGBT Foundation provides free advice and support for transgender, non-binary and gender non-conforming individuals experiencing discrimination or barriers to access on the grounds of gender identity.
To qualify for the service, you must be:
Living in Greater Manchester
Identify as trans, non-binary or gender diverse.
Once you’ve referred into the service using the form below, you will be contacted by our Trans Advocacy Officer via your preferred method to arrange an appointment. We aim to respond to all inquiries within 2 weeks; however, this may be longer during busy periods.
Depending on the complexity of your issue, you may be eligible for more than one appointment.
Please provide as much detail as you are able to about the issues requiring support. We may ask you for further information after your referral has been received to determine the best way of supporting you.
PLEASE NOTE: The Trans Advocacy Service provides support for transgender, non-binary and gender non-conforming individuals experiencing discrimination or barriers to access on the grounds of gender identity ONLY. If you approach us for support with discrimination and/or barriers to access relating to protected characteristics outside of gender identity (such as race, disability, sexuality etc), we will be unable to help, but may be able to signpost resources elsewhere.
If you are a professional filling out this form for a service user, please ensure that you have obtained the person’s consent for us to speak to them.
