Trans Mission was first set up as a “Coffee morning in the evening”. Since those humble beginnings we have grown and expanded as a direct response to the needs of our community. We now support trans and Gender Variant people across West Yorkshire in a range of ways both practical and emotional.
We run six Social and Support groups, a food bank, a Swap-Shop and a Peer Support Mentor Program with 5 trained Peers Support Mentors (PSM’s) across Bradford, Leeds, Halifax, Saltaire and Bingley.
We also offer training for companies wanting to educate themselves and their staff about Trans and Gender variant people. Previous clients have included the Police, NHS, Universities and Colleges.
We developed a series of workshops designed to promote positive mental health, and to tackle the internalised transphobia many of us carry with us. For more information go to the “WORKSHOPS” tab.
If you need support please do contact us. We try to reply as soon as possible but we are a very small team of volunteers so if you are in crisis need support urgently please contact the Samaritans on 116 123 (uk).
In 2017 we won the Bradford Pride Award for “LGBT Community Group” and Lisa Lee, our chair person, was recognised for her work with the award for “Outstanding Contribution to the Transgender Community.”
