About TransBarnsley


Support for Transgender and non-binary people and their families.


We run support groups for all Trans and Non-Binary people, in a safe and secure location with changing facilities. This is a non-judgemental, confidential space for you to be yourself and connect with others.


Support groups for families and partners of Trans and Non-Binary people coming soon.


Wherever you are on your gender identity journey you will be welcome. We just ask that you treat others with same respect as you would wish to receive.


If there are any barriers to you attending, then please get in touch to see how we can help.


Why a Trans group?

We recognise that being on the Trans spectrum brings with it specific difficulties, from the initial stages of exploring your gender identity to social and medical transition (if you choose this). At TransBarnsley we want to offer you a safe space where you are free to be you among likeminded people. Building social support networks is vital to building the protective factors to bring about better mental wellbeing outcomes.
