This is a work in progress! We are currently developing some great resources.
We have worked with so many great organisations. Here are a few of these organisations making a difference in the lives of trans and non-binary people:
Global Butterflies has worked with some of the largest companies in the UK delivering trans* awareness initiatives. They offer a number of training solutions but are very happy to work alongside any trans* initiatives you are undertaking.
Gendered Intelligence (GI) is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company, established in 2008.
Their mission is to increase understandings of gender diversity through creative ways.
Their vision is of a world where people are no longer constrained by narrow perceptions and expectations of gender, and where diverse gender expressions are visible and valued. We work predominantly with the trans community and those who impact on trans lives; we particularly specialise in supporting young trans people aged 11-25.
GIRES‘ overall aim is to improve substantially the environment in which gender non-conforming people live.
GIRES upholds the right of all those who do not fit the typical boy/girl, man/woman tick boxes, including people who intend to change gender role completely and others whose gender identity is non-binary, to live proudly in a society that celebrates diversity.
The Interbank Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Forum was formed in 2002.
It was a Network of LGBT Networks from those banks in the Investment Banking sector which met certain key membership criteria.
An Interbank institution was represented on the Interbank Committee by members of its LGBT Network. By 2012 Interbank consisted of 15 member institutions.
Mermaids is a support group originally formed in 1995 by a group of parents who were brought together as a result of their children’s longstanding Gender Identity Issues.
They have supported each other and their children through the difficulties and trauma that gender issues commonly bring to families.
They identified a need to form a support group to help other families, children, and teenagers in similar situations.
Their membership has grown, and they now have a number of new parents, plus young transmen and transwoman on thei committee. Over the years they have built up alliances with other organisations across the UK, and in some cases internationally, to try to support, educate, and alleviate suffering.
They offer information, support, friendship and shared experiences. They give support for individual young people, with or without support from their families, whether they are out or not. They try, where possible, to help their families understand and accept their child’s gender identity issue. They also offer their help to family members, professionals and others who are worried about a child or young person. They offer our support via telephone, email and snail mail.
OUTstanding is a not-for-profit professional network for LGBT executives and their allies.
Stonewall’s mission statement is
“We’re here to let all lesbian, gay, bi and trans people, here and abroad, know they’re not alone.
We believe we’re stronger united, so we partner with organisations that help us create real change for the better. We have laid deep foundations across Britain – in some of our greatest institutions – so our communities can continue to find ways to flourish, and individuals can reach their full potential. We’re here to support those who can’t yet be themselves.
But our work is not finished yet. Not until everyone feels free to be who they are, wherever they are.”
We collaborated with Stonewall on some great guides to supporting trans* people in the workplace! you can find them here.
Trans Media Watch is a charity that aims to improve media coverage of trans and intersex issues. It is run by volunteers and depends on ordinary trans and intersex people to be its eyes and ears. It aims to reflect the concerns of those people and of the community as a whole.
Trans Media Watch is concerned with issues affecting all people covered by the transgender umbrella, including transsexual people, non-binary people, crossdressers and other gender variant people. It also deals with issues affecting intersex people. It works with individuals themselves and with parents, carers and support organisations who may be assisting them.
UK Trans Info is a national organisation focused on improving the lives of trans and non-binary people in the UK.
