About our Family Days

Our family days have been running each year since 2013 in Leeds and 2014 in London and in the South West.

The days are open to all young people and their families who are currently being seen at GIDS.

The aim of the events is to allow young people and their families to meet each other in a relaxed and friendly environment. There will be talks from people who identify in different genders. There will also be group sessions for parents/carers, 11-18 year olds who attend the service, under 11 year olds, and siblings.

We are holding our sixth annual family support day for children, young people and their parents/carers who attend the Gender Identity Development Service. Siblings are welcome too.   

The aim of the event is to allow young people and their families to meet each other in a relaxed and friendly environment. There will be talks from people who identify in different genders. There will also be parallel group sessions for parents/carers, 11-18 year olds who attend the service, under 11 year olds and siblings.
