Transgender Support Service
Who is this service for?
This service is for anybody who identifies as trans*, gender diverse, non-binary, or simply questioning their gender identity.
*we use the umbrella term trans here to mean transgender, gender-diverse, and non-binary people - and those who are questioning their gender, those who are unsure if any of these terms might be right for them, and those who use other terms. Trans also encompasses tāhine, fa’afatama, whakawāhine, tangata ira tāne, fa’afafine, fakaleiti or leiti, fakafifine, akava’ine and vakasalewalewa.
The aim of the Transgender Support Service is to help gender-diverse young people (up to age 27) and/or their whānau, explore gender identity through accessing gender-affirming healthcare, counselling services, providing information and resources, and assist in creating connection and community with other people.
This means we can help with things like:
- referrals for gender-affirming health care
- attending social groups
- finding relevant and relatable resources
- advocating at work and/or at school
- accessing gender affirming clothing (including binders)
- name and gender marker changes
All of this support is entirely confidential and can look like whatever works best for you.
Let us know what support you need on your gender journey and we'll do our best to make it happen!
