Transformers is a fortnightly group offering a safe space for young people aged 16-25 who are trans, non- binary, gender non-conforming or questioning their gender identity.
Young people are able to meet in a comfortable & confidential setting, access one to one support with youth support workers, access information and participate in workshops, create resources and take part in fun activities.
As with all of our groups, staff and volunteers are LGBT and are trained to work with young people, however, we always aim to have trans workers facilitating the Transformers group and there are always two Allsorts staff members with help and support from volunteers.
We share announcements each week about events, campaigns and opportunities from within Allsorts Youth Project and from the wider community too so there’s an opportunity to hear what’s happening in and around the city and what you can get involved in should you so wish.
I heard about Allsorts from a friend and started going to Transformers. It’s been really special to have a trans only space and get support from workers that are trans too. It’s helped me see that being trans doesn’t need to hold me back.
Transformers has given me a space to be myself and work out how I identify with my gender. When I first started coming I felt uncomfortable with my presentation, but now I feel more confident and have made some friends too!
You will not be able to attend any of our groups or services without having had an introductory meeting with a staff member.
