TransUnite is a comprehensive resource for people in the UK searching for support in the transgender community. Our easy to use, mobile friendly directory connects you to an established network of trans support groups near you.
Many transgender individuals experience negative mental health issues due to the prejudice and other biases they face. Research suggests that our community faces a greater risk for depression, anxiety, and addiction or substance abuse.
Support groups bring together people facing similar issues to share experiences and advice. It can be helpful just getting to talk with other people at all stages of the transition. Some of the key benefits to finding and attending trans support groups include;
- Realising you’re not alone
- Express thoughts & feelings
- Gain helpful information & experiences
- Socialise with like-minded individuals
- Increase self-understanding
- Provide help to others
Our aim is to bring these together and make finding them as easy and accessible as possible. TransUnite connects you to a network of groups throughout England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland and can be split into physical local and online groups.
Find transgender meetups local to you. Search via area and discover what services are available to you. Profile pages include detailed information on the type of support offered, such as one-2-one guidance, events and social gatherings.
Physical meetups aren’t for everyone and in many cases, online support provides the therapeutical guidance sought. From articles and blogs to forums and chat rooms, our directory of UK based transgender online support sites is comprehensive and regularly updated.
