Miles For Mermaids: In Their Own Words
I lost a friend in my second year of university. Kelsey. A trans woman. I support Mermaids in her legacy. I hope that if others can receive support and guidance that they can not only survive but thrive. Mermaids is [one of few] UK charities supporting transgender and gender diverse children and young people. In an era where government funding for gender clinics, particularly for young people, is at an all time low, their work is more crucial than ever. In fact according to Stonewall, ‘More than half (54 per cent) of trans people reported that they have been told by their GP that they don’t know enough about trans-related care to provide it’. Mermaids’ lobbies government and lawmakers. They fight for justice for trans people across all aspects of society. They have a helpline to provide support to trans people and their families. They have a website full of useful information. Almost half of young transgender individuals have attempted suicide. All the research shows that support to a transgender individual will hugely reduce that likelihood that. I will stand with any organisation that can help to reverse the worrying trends we are seeing and protect some of our most vulnerable.Morag, a Mermaids’ fundraiser, in a blog post about the charities she supports
