Transformers: our Leeds-based group for young people

The group is open to young people aged 12-18 years who are currently being seen at the GIDS.

We usually meet during the school holidays. The group has been running since 2013 so some people will have already been to Transformers before, while others will be coming along for the first time.

We also run a separate group for parents at the same time as our group for young people. Both groups aim to provide a place to meet others with similar experiences, to share stories and support each other. Please contact us to let us know if you and/or your parents plan to attend, so that we have a rough idea of the numbers we’re expecting.

We run groups at the Tavistock Centre in London too, which you are also very welcome to attend – more details can be found in the events section of this site.
