GIDS events

These events are for young people and/or parents who have already attended their first session with GIDS. If you are on our waiting list, have not had your first session, but still wish to attend, please get in touch and we'll see if there is space at the specific event.

Our groups in London

We hold regular groups at the Tavistock Centre in London both for young people (aged 12+) and for parents.

The young people's group is normally scheduled to coincide with the main school holidays. It usually has a different theme each time.

Parents groups run regularly throughout the year.

Family Days

Our Family Days allow young people and their families to meet each other in a relaxed and friendly environment and to hear about other people's experiences of gender. There are talks from people who identify in different genders, as well as group sessions for parents/carers, teenagers, younger children, and siblings.

The provisional dates for the 2017 Family Days are:

  • London:  Monday, 7th August 2017
  • Exeter:  Friday, 11th August 2017 (for families seen in our South West clinics)
  • Leeds:  Wednesday, 30th August 2017

Further details, including how to register, will be published closer to the time. Please contact us for more information.

Soup Group (Stakeholders Group)

The Soup Group (also known as the Stakeholders Group) is a fun and active group made up of young people who attend GIDS working with the staff to improve the experiences of those who use our service. The group meets at least three times a year, usually during the half-term holidays, at the Tavistock Centre in London.
