We provide a non-judgemental space for children and young people to feel heard, valued and safe.
We are a small charity offering support to people dealing with real life sensitive situations. We are not a lobby, campaigning or activist group or an organisation that has any say regarding the medical process when discussing transgender issues or concerns. Our approach is person-centred, meaning we are non-judgemental, non-directive (ie. we do not tell people what to do) and do not have an agenda in our work with children, young people or their families.
The current media attention regarding the issue of gender identity and how our organisation operates has been factually incorrect, misleading and distressing for service users, families and staff. As we head into our 20th year of operation, we are proud of the essential role we play in supporting children & young people who are exploring their gender identity and/or sexual orientation who need a supportive and safe environment to do so.
