GenderGP Roadshow – GenderGP comes to Safe Haven in June

In response to concerns about the current NHS waiting lists, GenderGP are coming down to sunny Cornwall for their first ever Roadshow! The aim of the event is to inform trans people & their families on the medical side of transitioning and what your options are. 

This is worth attending even if you’re not quite sure if you want to medically transition, as the experts will be able to answer any questions you have. You also don’t need to be considering private care to attend.

The event is FREE and open to anyone in the South West (though I’m sure we would be happy to have you if you come from further afield!). For more information and to book a ticket, please read more.

Local MP Visits Safe Haven Cornwall – Supporting the Transgender and Non-Binary Community.

In October 2018, George Eustice MP took the time to visit Safe Haven – Cornwall, near Camborne, a local Charitable organisation who provide support for people involved within the transgender/non-binary community.

George Eustice said, “Safe Haven are a good local organisation providing help and support to the trans and LGBTQ community. It’s great that there are a number of different support groups aimed at tackling the issues which transgender/non-binary people face, and I would like to congratulate them on their achievements and hard work that they do in supporting the local community.”

Safe Haven Shortlisted for National Diversity Awards 2018

In September 2018, Safe Haven were proud and humbled to be both nominated & shortlisted for the National Diversity Awards. Stephanie and Gail attended on behalf of Safe Haven.

We received the nomination due to the strength of feedback given by our members – the Diversity Awards were touched by what our members had to say about their experiences with us.

As a fledging organistion, just being nominated was a huge honour.

We also congratulate the winners in our category, an organisation called SAIL NI, who have been supporting family members of transgender, non-binary and questioning people across Northern Ireland since 2008.
 
We hope to be nominated again next year!
