Talk to us!

Our youth group for gender diverse and/or transgender young people between 12 and 19 years old, has grown from a starting point of 3 members to over 300. The forum is a safe space for you to ask questions, talk about how you are doing, and share experiences with others in the same or similar circumstances to you. It is very important that we are respectful of one another and the group is a wonderful place to find community and allay fears. Through access to the groups, you will also receive notifications of meetings, local groups and residential weekends.

It operates through an email service so you must supply a valid email address, and you can customise your account to receive all emails, a daily digest of a number of emails together, or no emails at all if you would prefer to log in and access the forum online.

If you would like to join the youth group you will need to read and agree to follow the rules and code of conduct, plus supply us with a certain amount of personal information so we can verify your identity and make sure that your application is genuine. We take the safety and security of our groups very seriously, for your protection, and to allow you to post and ask questions with the knowledge that to the best of our abilities, your information is confidential. The information is accessed by members of our moderation team only.

To apply, complete the form below to join the group. All of the fields MUST be completed correctly or the application will automatically be refused. 

This group is open to gender diverse and/or transgender young people from 12 years old up to and including the age of 19. When you reach 20 years of age, you will be removed from the group, but if you would like to continue to be involved please let us know as we have lots of volunteer opportunities.

As part of the security measures, you will be required to supply us with a telephone number, so that we can call you before we can approve you to join the group. The call will be from a witheld number, to maintain confidentiality. If you would prefer, you can supply us with a Skype ID as an alternative contact means, but we will still need the telephone number for our security checks.

Youth Group Application
This needs to be your legal name please.
We will always use your preferred name (unless you ask us not to) when corresponding with you.
Our emails often end up in spam/junk folders, so please do check there for communication from us following your application. The email you receive will be addressed from Egress rather than Mermaids, as our emails are encrypted.
This is so a member of the admin team can call you for a confidential chat prior to approving your membership. Our number will come-up as "withheld" when we call. This is for complete confidentiality.
Please tell us a little about your gender identity and why you would like to be part of the Youth community.
