We support young people who are trans*, non-binary or questioning their gender; feelings about being male, female, or something else. We provide advice and information on transition, trans* sexual health, sex and relationships, name changes, discrimination, education and employment.
Due to the recent Government guidelines, all of our face to face groups are on hold. Do keep in touch via social media and contact us direct if you would like to get involved.
Last year young people engaging with MAP made a fantastic film: Understanding and Respecting Differences – to explore the real experiences of Norfolk’s trans youth – to raise awareness about the diversity of experiences and needs within the transgender community. This project (which includes an accompanying booklet) was supported by The Barbara Ross Association, in memory of the late Barbara Ross OBE, a pioneer of gender counselling.
We have Evolve, our monthly group for transgender, intersex, genderqueer and gender-questioning young people. It provides a safe space for young people to meet and discuss trans* issues and also to just hang out in a trans* friendly environment, where people are respectful, understanding and friendly. On occasions we run group activities outside of the meetings and have been involved in film-making projects, poetry workshops, and Norwich Pride.
