Information

Transfigurations is pleased to announce the start of a new group specifically for trans children and youth (and their parents of course). The group will start meeting in April in the Torbay area and the location is being kept secret to protect the identities of the children attending meetings.

The group will be meeting on a Sunday afternoon and restrictions do apply.

Children up to the age of 13:

All children up to the age of 13 must be accompanied on all visits by a parent or guardian

Children between the ages of 13 to 16:

All children between the ages of 13 to 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for a minimum of their first 3 visits. After that these young people can attend on their own provided that a parent or guardian fills in and returns a Consent Form.

Young people between the ages of 17 to 19:

All teenagers between the ages of 17 to 18 may attend on their own provided that a parent or guardian signs and returns a Consent Form.

Parents:

The group will also be for parents of transgender people to get the support and help from other parents – and to give their support in return.

The group will be split on timings with a 30 min overlap between the two groups:

Children up to the age of 13:

All children up to the age of 13 will be able to attend from 2:00pm until 3:30pm

Young people between the ages of 13 to 19:

All teenagers between the ages of 13 to 19 will be able to attend from 3:00 until 5:00pm – this is because the older children will have things to discuss which are not particularly relevant to the younger group at that stage of their development.

 

Please note that once teenagers have reached the age of 17, they can also attend the adult group if they so wish – or continue to come to the youth group – or both if they wish to.

Also note that all volunteers working with the children will have had enhanced level DBS checks carried out.
