In collaboration with MindOut advocacy services, we are providing a weekly drop in session to provide space with a trained advocate to help with questions, concerns and exploring where to go next. An advocate can help you find information and options, think about your goals and how you want to be heard. Stop by to either talk about something specific or learn more about further support in an informal and friendly environment.
Services Hosted At The Centre:
From the Trans Pride Centre, you can access multiple services from other groups.
Navigate Brighton is a peer support group for Transgender, Non-binary and Intersex people on the Trans-masculine spectrum. This is due to the fact that, even though we have a lot of shared experiences, some things discussed just aren’t relevant to everyone. Navigate is still fully supportive and welcoming to anyone who wishes to attend, this specification is to purely make sure everyone is getting the relevant support for them.
Their meetings are a safe space and you are welcome to contact them with questions or comments. They provide a social space, support, advice and co-ordinate local campaigns relevant to those we support. Their aim is to be a diverse group, whether you are intending to transition or not, and regardless of surgery or hormone use.
Navigate meetings are held on the second Friday of every month at the Centre, drop-in support can be accessed at the centre by contacting Navigate and arranging this, and Navigate’s binder library may be accessed at any time the Trans Pride Centre is open.
TransSober is a Trans and Non-Binary Drug and Alcohol Peer Support Service which provides drop-in group support for those struggling with or sober from drugs or alcohol facilitated by volunteers from the trans and non-binary community who have a range of lived-experience of drug and/or alcohol use and its associated problems, but are now living drug and alcohol-free. The purpose of the group is to provide an informal, face-to -face weekly support opportunity that attendees can build into their routine: a place where trans and non-binary people can come together in a safe, non-judgmental space. TransSober also offers
TransSober also offer a one-to-one outreach support service, offering advice, signposting, and support for people who feel their drug and/or alcohol use may be impacting on their ability to manage some of life’s tasks or find that life events are causing them to use and/or drink more than usual. They can also help with issues include drugs and alcohol, transitioning, deed polls/name change, loneliness, finances and money, management, form-filling, employment, housing, and general well-being.
TransSober also arrange sober social events throughout the year open to anyone from the community, either free or at low-cost. These can be found on their website calendar.
Group sessions occur every Monday at 6.00 – 7.30pm & every Thursday at 1.00 – 2.30pm.
Drop-ins are accessible through the TransSober website.
