Looking to donate? That's awesome.
First of all, you’re awesome. By contributing towards this cause, you’re helping to support transgender individuals by providing them with important things like surgery, appointments, medication, set-up fees and binders. You’re really helping to do great things here and we’re so thankful you’re willing to help.
Thousands of transgender people in the UK miss out on life-changing opportunities and it typically is down to financial circumstances. It’s a costly journey for many that are on the NHS waiting list and even for those not on the NHS waiting list. Let’s change the game for transgender people across the nation and provide them with what they should be entitled to, without leaving them to pick up the financial pieces.
To learn more about where the money goes, please take a look at the information below this form. Again, thank you so much for choosing to support the cause, you really are a star.
We’re aiming for a goal of £5000. This will allow us to legally register as a charity in the UK which opens more support avenues to the community.
If you’re looking to donate a binder, please donate here >
A chest binder is an item of clothing that compresses the chest to make it appear flatter. A binder can cost anywhere in the region of £30 – £60 from reputable companies such as GC2B and Spectrum Outfitters.
There are risks of people buying cheaper, less reliable and unsafe binders due to financial circumstances. We want to prevent this. Even small donations can add up, which means we can support more transgender individuals with FREE, good quality and safe binders.
The start of the physical journey for Transgender individuals is making an appointment to see a gender specialist. These specialists asses the individuals’ symptoms and consider the range of medical routes once they have given the formal diagnosis of gender dysphoria.
They are the primary starting route to use when progressing on the journey of transitioning. The fees for appointments can vary, but below is a rough idea on how much these can cost for a private clinic (home visits can cost more). The first appointment can cost up to £300, which takes up to around 60 minutes. After that, it can be up to £150 per appointment which lasts around 30 minutes, excluding the counselling sessions which can cost up to £50.
As part of the transition journey, medical subscriptions such as hormones, Anti-androgens and puberty blocking injections and nasal spray can cost quite a bit. The estimated costs of these are around:
- Hormones – from around £10 per month but depends on individual needs.
- Anti-androgens – around £10 per month.
- Puberty blocking nasal spray – around £60 per month.
- Puberty blocking injections – around £100 per month.
Most private providers also charge a set up fee of up to £200 before subscriptions can be taken out.
