Mermaids is one of the leading charities working to support thousands of transgender or gender non-conforming children, young people and their families. Our overarching aim is to create a world where gender diverse children and young people can be themselves and thrive.
To this end, our goal is to relieve the mental and emotional stress of all those aged 19 years and under who are gender variant, as well as to promote education and awareness.
We offer information, support, friendship and shared experiences to young people and their families, as well as providing some local and national opportunities to meet others. We achieve these charitable aims through our helpline as well as training, parent and teenager support groups and a wide variety of events, all supported by our volunteers.
As a growing charity our staff team increased from one person (our CEO) in January 2016 to four by the end of the year. In February 2019 our staff team had grown to 10, and with the successful grant from the National Lottery Community Fund, has continued to expand. This page will detail any outstanding posts.
Mermaids considers intern requests on a case by case basis as and when Mermaids has work that would benefit from this extra assistance. Should you want to enquire about any intern opportunities, please contact [email protected] with CV, cover letter and details of your current circumstances including your area of specialism.
