Event description

Description

Mermaids supports children and young people up to 19 years old suffering from gender identity issues, and their families.  Our resources provide a vital lifeline for young people and families who are searching for support and information. We are often the first port of call for assistance by parents desperate to alleviate the suffering of their children, or teenagers, isolated and afraid of their families’ response to their gender identity. We also have numerous resources for professionals involved in a young person’s care, and deliver training around the country as well as provide first line support to families and young people.

We are the only UK wide charity working in this field and the only one signposted by the NHS, NSPCC and Childline. Last year we supported over 1,000 people plus reached over 200 professionals working with young people.
