About Us

TransWakefield is a place for the transgender community of Wakefield, West Yorkshire, and surrounding areas to come together to chat, make friends, share experiences, share advice and share events.

TransWakefield aims to provide practical support to all transpeople, their families and friends.

It is a source of information and guidance for health professionals, care workers, employers and anyone interested in transgender issues.  We have up-to-date information on the treatment offered by the NHS and the various other options available.

We can provide practical help with clothes and make-up and learning to live in a new gender role, whether full or part time.

We have access to experienced support workers who can meet in confidence with anyone who is confronted with gender issues.  This could be the transgendered person themselves, a family member, a GP. health worker or employer.  Meetings are held at a safe, discrete, location, in Wakefield, anyone wishing to attend should contact us first to introduce themselves.  In the interest of privacy we may wish to talk to prospective members on the telephone before inviting them to join us, though this is not always necessary.

We have moved the location of our Wakefield meetings, nearer to the town centre.  If you do not have the new address please use the Contact Us page …
