Are you considering transition while working?

Our team would be happy to support you with advice, confidential communication and support. 


Here is an In-Transition Workplace Support Form which can be used to kick-start communications between you and your employer. Simply print it off and begin.  Or you're welcome to fill in online and request support free of charge from our team members. This confidential. We do not collect names or email addresses, unless otherwise volunteered.

Inclusion matters - and we're here to ensure your transition at work is a positive experience, free from unnecessary bias and stress.
