Who we are
Established in 2019, ‘Safe2Trans’ is an organisation that focuses solely on assisting the Transgender community. We work with organisations and companies to provide funding for transgender people. Although the Transgender community is a part of the LGBTQ+ umbrella, we find it often gets lost and forgotten about.
We believe that Transgender people deserve more attention, consideration and help when it comes to the struggles they face in their day-to-day life. We provide FREE binders where possible to Transgender individuals across the UK, in the hope of making their transition a little bit easier.
The organisation is run by a variety of helpful volunteers who either identify under the LGBTQ+ spectrum or support it.
