Trans Children and Young People Support Groups

HodgePodge 12 and under

TPlus 12 plus

HodgePodge is Think2Speak's trans youth group open to transgender or gender questioning young children age 13 and under, their families and carers.

TPlus is our trans youth group for young people age 12-17 who are transgender or gender questioning.

Both groups are safe and supportive spaces:

  • For children and young people to explore their gender identity if they're questioning, be themselves if they're not out, have an opportunity to chat about trans stuff if they're stealth - a safe space to simply be themselves

  • For transgender and gender questioning children and young people to meet their peers in a safe, relaxed and supportive environment

  • For parents, carers and family members who are supporting a transgender or gender questioning child to meet each other for support

The groups meet monthly on the last Wednesday of each month for a social in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire and the groups are free of charge to attend.

We require any child or young person attending HodgePodge to be accompanied by a responsible adult.

HodgePodge 5:30 – 7pm

TPlus 7-8:30pm

Both HodgePodge and TPlus are facilitated by a team of DBS checked volunteers, all of whom have experience of supporting transgender or gender questioning children or who are LGBTQ+ themselves.
