Not Alone - Transgender and Non-Binary Support Group
Not Alone provides support and advice for transgender and non-binary people in Plymouth. It has been set up to provide a safe place for sharing thoughts and feelings for those who need it.
We welcome any and all transgender and non-binary people to join, as well as their family, partners and allies.
What happens in the support groups?
This is a question that we often get asked. It is an important question, knowing what to expect helps people from being so nervous if they come along. Speaking about gender issues for the first time can be scary, but the most important thing to remember that this is a safe place where you can do so amongst other like-minded people.
Our meetings our friendly and informal, we start by introducing ourselves with our name and the pronouns that we use (he/him, she/her, they/them etc). If anyone does not want to introduce themselves then that's fine too.
We then normally have some 'Trans News', a quick update on the latest goings on in the Trans & Non-Binary community that week.
We then discuss anything that people would like to bring up in the group. This can be personal issues, medical questions, family, activities, interests or anything at all that they would like to talk about.
After an hour we break from the group format, grab a cup of tea or coffee and speak more informally and casually, in small groups and one-to-one. This is so that those not confident speaking in a group can have a chance to talk in a way which they may find easier.
