Online Groups

Empowerment is a key feature of the online social groups and Spectra’s trans programme engages the knowledge, energy & experience of service users, mentors, volunteers and staff of trans experience, providing peer led mentoring, workshops, podcasts, peer support and counselling that work to build resilience, resourcefulness, skills and strength for the trans and non-binary community.

We are offering two groups:

  1. Non-Binary group, for people self identified as non-binary only. This group is running every other week, 17:30-19:30.
  2. A general trans group, and all for trans, non-binary and questioning people. This group runs every Friday, 17:30-19:30.
