TRANS AID CYMRU
MUTUAL AID FOR COMMUNITY BY THE COMMUNITY
Trans Aid Cymru aims to help Transgender, Non-Binary and Intersex (TIN) people through mutual aid support. The project is run by TIN people for TIN people, making it inclusive and understanding of the community needs.
MORE ABOUT US
We run a multitude of projects to help the community. You can find out more about each one of them here. All the pages also contain guidance on how to apply.
Founded by a group of transgender and non-binary folk, we have formed a mutual aid to support others in Wales! Find out more about our roots here.
Whether you are trans, intersex or non-binary person or an ally there are ways to get involved. Check them out here!
One of our main aims is making sure TIN people can cover their costs of living and their transition. We help with this by redistributing money through fundraisers and to TIN people in need.
IN NEED OF FUNDS?
We have a few different types of grant available to claim, from everyday assistance grants, emergency funds and fundraising top ups! We have a page to explain them all and how you can apply.
Being transparent and accountable is one of our core values as an organization. It’s one of the reasons we chose Open Collective as our financial mechanism.
Open Collective allows everyone to see not only the number of contributions made and the amount contributed, but also the particular area of our work that they’ve gone to. You can choose to donate to fund a counselling session, or to help with our running costs, or for your money to go to for redistribution.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
MAKE A DONATION
Donations help us deliver grants to trans, intersex and non-binary (TIN) people in Wales who need help with their immediate living costs.
FUND A COUNSELLING SESSION
Donating £15 can help a trans person access an hour-long counselling session for free!
Join our community! When a trans, intersex and non-binary (TIN) person needs immediate help we rely on our community to provide vital support.
