The group is open for anyone to attend who are friends, family,
significant others, partners or children* of transgender people who
feel they need or are able to give support over a variety of issues
surrounding their loved ones transition/gender dysphoria and what it
means to them.  The group aims to be a safe space for SOFFA’S to be
able to chat about their feelings, fears, needs and worries, to build
connections and community and offer support to each other.

Caroline and Rebecca will be on hand to facilitate the first few
meetings and see what members would like to cover and get from the

Whether you have been to a meeting before or not please come visit Elizabeth and I for information about the group or a wee chat. There will also be other community groups to find out about and some fun activities.

On Sunday 27th of July we have the monthly meeting of the Me & T support group. This is a supportive space for friends, family and partners of trans and non binary people. This month’s meeting will have a Pride theme and is advertised in the Pride Guide for Glasgow’s pride festival.
