We are a small group of like minded people who have faced or facing the condition of being Trans.
The group of friends who have given input to this group decided that we would become a signpost to other organisations and agencies.
We also would like to become friends to other trans people and those of other local groups to raise and voice trans issues and discrimination.
Transcend is committed to developing and providing services and activities which enhance the ability of people with gender issues to make informed choices. It is also committed to educating the public and providers about the needs of people with gender issues.
We offer a wide range of services to people with gender issues, their partners, families and friends within Derbyshire. These include one- to one’s, Buddying and Advocacy support. We specifically aim to provide a high quality service which acknowledges human rights and ensures respect and confidentiality.
Since or launch we have continued to develop and have the opportunity to feed into multiple organisations and agencies about Trans issues.
Some of these include :
Derby Homes,Derbyshire Constabulary. The Crown Prosecution Services,Derby Council, Derbyshire County Council and Derbyshire Friend in which we run a confidential drop-in service every first Wednesday of the month. Plus there are Regional and National groups and Forums which covers a variety of remits in which our members are either associated or interact with.
