What's it about?

Following our first three “Lost in Transition?” conferences in Cornwall & Devon, which generated enormous interest and outstandingly positive feedback, we are hosting our first Gender Identity Conference for Dorset & Wiltshire, where increasing numbers of young people are presenting as Transgender or Gender Variant. We are particularly fortunate to be able to welcome a presentation and workshop from Dr Polly Carmichael and her team from the NHS Tavistock and Portman Gender Clinic, which provides services for young people and their families in Dorset & Wiltshire, and the wider south west.
