Awareness Into Action

This year’s Trans Awareness Week (TAW) takes place 13-19 November, culminating in Trans Day of Remembrance on 20 November.

It is a time for reflection, a time for celebration, and a time for us to come together as a community to highlight the issues faced by trans, non-binary and gender diverse people.

For Trans Awareness Week 2021 we have created a toolkit to help you celebrate and honour this week.

In today’s climate, we believe that awareness of the challenges faced by trans people is not enough. So we’re calling on our supporters, and the wider community, to use TAW to mobilise, to move, and to transform awareness into action

Action looks different for all of us but there are things we can all do today to actively support trans youth and create a world where trans people are able to thrive, not just survive.

Hello! We rely on your donations to continue our work supporting young people and their families.

Regular monthly donations mean we can plan ahead, keep our helpline services open for young people and families and carry on speaking up for trans rights.

We’re a small charity operating under huge pressure, so any amount you can give makes a real difference. Thank you so much for standing by trans children and young people.

Don’t forget to tell us why you donated! Our staff and volunteers really do find strength in your words!
