Trans Health Merseyside (THM) is a collaborative project led by In-Trust Merseyside and supported by Sahir House. Established in 2015 and funded by Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), THM engages with Merseyside’s Trans networks by providing peer mentoring, health and wellbeing information, support with employability issues and support for victims of transphobic hate incidents.
Volunteer Peer Mentors provide health information and support to those who identify as transsexual, transgender, intersex, and gender non-conforming to help alleviate social isolation and related stress and promote empowerment. Volunteer training, induction, support and travel expenses are provided.
The next wellbeing session will be on Tuesday 28th November at Sahir House, 6-8pm.
Bill McAdam from STOP HATE UK, Mandy Hamilton from TravelSafe Partnership, and a representative from the Police Domestic Violence Unit will provide a session on reporting Hate Crime and Abuse in Public and Private spaces.
Trans peer mentors will be available for one-to-one support and signposting before and after meetings as follows: 5.30-6pm and 7.30-8pm.
All sessions are free but spaces may be limited. Please register your attendance by phoning 0151 237 3989 and ask for Kath Charters or Victoria Hughes. There is changing space available at Sahir House and they are fully accessible.
