Action For Trans Health

Our mission:

Action for Trans* Health seeks to improve trans* people’s access to healthcare. We currently see our aims as follows:

  • Raising funds to give small cash grants which facilitate trans* individuals’ access to healthcare. As this is an area where demand will always exceed supply, priority will be given to people who are facing greater barriers than most, e.g. non-binary/genderqueer people, people with communication issues, those who have been in the system for a long time due to administrative/funding issues, etc.
  • Engaging with medical professionals about trans* health; by putting together workshops on trans* health needs, compiling lists of doctors known to be good with trans* patients, assisting people to complain about malpractice, etc.
  • Engaging the trans* community about health issues; by providing sexual health workshops, harm reduction information on self-medicating, information on NHS funding structures, etc.
