We are a trans led, radical mutual aid group, set up to help trans and non-binary people in Greater Manchester support each other through direct action.
We run a small mutual aid fund, giving our community a way to help each other out with essential costs. The fund will provide assistance with things like electrolysis sessions, buying binders, travel to GIC appointments, emergency housing assistance and other essential transition related costs. We raise money via fundraisers and direct debits which will then be distributed to applicants following a meeting to allocate the funds lead by a trans and non-binary panel who will manage the anonymised requests.
We are also building a grassroots aid network which will enable trans people in Manchester to help each other with things like attending medical appointments, support after surgery, befriending and social outreach. We aim to work closely with other groups in order to maximize our outreach and provide support and community to as many people as possible.
We run regular community meetings over Zoom in order to establish how we can better support our community and involve more people in the decision making process and we are always welcoming more participants.
