About TG Peer Associates Ltd.
We are a not-for-profit company, based in Kent but also utilised throughout a wider area via email and phone, that always aimed to provide social and emotional support services, including peer support and mentoring, to any individual that identifies as transgender, transexual, gender assigned incongruent, transvestite, crossdresser, intersex, gender queer, gender questioning or any actual or perceived gender variance, their significant others and those who support them.
We have always aimed to actively promote social inclusion and mental wellbeing through drawing upon the wealth of skills and experience within the trans community to provide a peer support network via our Drab & Dress support groups.
We celebrate diversity and embrace our local communities, where possible working in partnership and signposting to other agencies to assist them with transgender people having a voice in, or being in receipt of, services that include them.
'We three friends of variant are...'
..three friends enjoying coffee and a good chat at a friends house in Kent; one undergoing serious medical treatment with hormonal side effects, one with a trans partner and one a crossdresser. Having had the chance to whinge a bit, laugh a bit and share issues with non judgmental, likeminded people we, on spec, decided to form a trans support group. Why? Because none of us knew of any support groups in our area and we all knew how hard it could be to find a social support network-even one person to talk to about transgender issues. And so the Drab & Dress TG Peer Support Group was born!
That was over 10 years ago...we are still going strong as a group and but now find ourselves at the point of having to wind down the services provided and allow those with more resources than us teh chance to step into the gap and take things forward for all trans folk.
Our other services have all been set up with trans people involved in both the design and the delivery.
We aim to deliver straight from the horses mouth and support the NHS philosophy 'no decision about me without me'.
