Peer support meetings

We run monthly peer support sessions to meet and share experiences of trans life. The sessions usually have a theme based on what our members would like to talk or learn about. 

About the meetings

Everyone who comes along has the opportunity to ask questions, share their experiences, knowledge, ideas, and information in a safe, welcoming environment. Discussions are encouraged and participants can share as much or as little as they're comfortable with.

Find out more about what happens at our meetings.

Dates 

We meet on the 4th Sunday of the month (not always the last!) from 3pm-5pm. We share the dial in details in our private Facebook group. If you're not on Facebook, you can join us by contacting us and requesting to be added to the email list for dial in details.  

Who can come along 

We welcome anyone who identifies as trans masculine including trans men, non-binary people and those exploring or questioning their gender. You don’t need to book or let anyone know beforehand that you’re coming, unless you want to. Newcomers and first-timers are more than welcome!  

A support person is welcome to attend with, and at the invitation of, their trans person.

There is no age limit, but we mainly cater for adults.  Younger people are more than welcome, though not all topics will be suitable depending on the individual. Parents are welcome to attend with their young person.  

Price 

There is no cost for attending The Shed meetings. If you’re able to, and would like to help support us, you can make a donation or buy an annual membership.   

Activities and socials 

We run activities and socials and also support our members to run activities that interest them.

 

We love to hear suggestions for social activities and we're always up for trying something new. If you have ideas for things you'd like to do, drop a message in the facebook group or send us an email
