The National Trans Youth Network was set up in September 2013. It is a network of trans youth groups from around the UK, and includes the youth workers who support them.
What are our aims?
- To provide opportunities for young trans people to have fun, to socialise, to network, and to gain support and share ideas for a trans positive education from primary school through to university;
- To help young people campaign for what they need by talking directly with those who can promote their interests and help them achieve better outcomes;
- To support the needs of young trans people up to the age of 25, and those that work on their behalf in schools, colleges and universities
