Title

Expert organisations offering support to trans men and/or non-binary people

The LGBT Foundation logo. 

There are many organisations in the UK that specialise in supporting trans and/or non-binary people, through direct services, advocacy, campaigning and more. 

It may be helpful for you to know about these organisations, so you can direct patients to them if needed, or in case they are useful for your own understanding and development. 

Before you direct trans and/or non-binary patients to these organisations, it is important to establish a trusting relationship and avoid ‘handing over’ patients because you are unsure of how to support them. These organisations should be complementary to the support you are offering.
