Mermaids Charity was formed in 1995 with the following aims:
- To support children and teenagers coping with gender identity issues
- To offer support to parents, families, carers and others
- To raise awareness about gender issues amongst professionals and the general public
- To campaign for the recognition of gender identity issues and for an increase in professional services
Mermaids’ membership is exclusive to young people under the age of 20yrs with gender dysphoria and their parents. In August 2014 parents were asked to complete an online survey regarding their experiences within the Gender Identity Development service in the UK.
