Gender Matters Charitable Objects
- To improve the health, well-being and confidence of trans people by providing support and advice for them, their family and friends.
- To provide a support service to facilitate, through staff, volunteers and peers, the provision of counselling and social interactions.
- To advance equality and reduce discrimination and harassment by supporting other organisations to improve their services and their interactions with trans people.
The work carried out by GM is vitally important because, whilst the transgender community is considered to be a marginalised minority, it is a very significant minority (1% of the population) .
