Getting legal help
Name Change Clinic
An online legal clinic in collaboration with international law firm, Latham & Watkins, where you can receive free and independent guidance on the use of deed polls to change your or your child’s name.
Hate Crime Support
If you are in an emergency, please call 999.
No one deserves to be treated with abuse as a result of being trans. As much as we hope that you do not experience any hate crime or discrimination in your day-to-day life, unfortunately these incidents do happen.
Trans Friendly Lawyers List
We have been busy gathering together a list of the trans friendly solicitor’s firms and barristers chambers we work with regularly. If you’re in need of support with a legal matter do contact us for more information.
Mermaids does not offer legal representation and we cannot substitute a lawyer, who will be responsible for the individuals case. We cannot accept responsibility for any advice obtained and welcome feedback with regard to your experiences with those you have been signposted to, so we can ensure our list continues to be as trans friendly as possible.
