Service currently on hiatus

We are not currently running our parents and carers workshop sessions. If this service returns in future updates will be posted here and via our social media.

Parents and Carers Sessions

Would you like support with:

Then Gendered Intelligence’s Parents and Carers session is for you

We provide half day (3 hour) trans awareness sessions enabling parents and carers to broaden their understanding of young trans people’s experiences. The session is based around interactive exercises, encouraging participants to get involved in thinking through what gender means to us all and how you can better support your child / young person. We will create a structured, but informal space for you to explore the topics and to ask questions.

At the end of the session you will have:

Who should attend?

Parents, guardians or carers supporting a child / young person who is trans, non-binary or questioning their gender.

Why should I attend?

The subject of trans people / gender identity may be new, or fairly new, to you and the session will help you to gain an understanding of the basics.

Session Dates - at our London Location

  • We do not currently have any upcoming dates fixed. Please check back in future for 2021/22 dates.

  • Timings: 12:30pm arrival (for a prompt 1:00pm start) – 4:00pm

    Location: VAI building, very close to King's Cross station, London


    Full price £45 (10 places available)

    Reduced fee £25 (4 places available)

    Reduced fee for:
    A second parent/carer attending the same session as another parent/carer of the same child
    Anyone on low income who cannot afford the full fee

    Gendered Intelligence is subsidising the cost of running these sessions in order to offer these prices. We are not asking for evidence of low income as we are operating on an honesty basis, but we ask people only to request a reduced fee place if it is genuinely needed, to maximise access to the sessions.

    This workshop is intended for parents, guardians and carers to attend without the young person you are supporting being in the session. Unfortunately we are unable to provide childcare facilities during the session.
