Social Drop-ins

We run get-togethers for the trans, non-binary, intersex, gender-variant and gender-questioning community, to socialise, find out about services, and receive support. These take place weekly in person, as well as fortnightly online.

Tuesday Drop-in

1st Tuesday of the month: 5-7pm, before our monthly Meet & Eat
All other Tuesdays: 2:30-5:30pm
Location: Dorset Gardens Methodist Church, Brighton, BN2 1RL

The Clare Project’s Tuesday Drop-in has been going for nearly 30 years, providing the community with support and advice, alongside an opportunity to socialise. The drop-in accommodates a safe space for anyone who considers themselves trans, gender-questioning or exploring, to come along, meet others, and find out more about local support services.

Attendees do not require any consultation prior to attendance and can come as little or as often as they like. The structure of this drop-in is informal, and set up as a non-structured social space, where you can also speak to facilitators and other community members. It is free to come along, and you are welcome to bring a Personal Assistant or friend/family member for support.

If you would like to talk to or meet with one of our facilitators prior to coming along, please do feel free to get in touch via our contact us page. Joining a new group can be quite nerve-wracking, and difficult at first, but we can help support you in making it a little easier.

Online socials

Run every fortnight on a Monday at 6:00-7:30pm.

In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have started running some of our core services online as well. This gives people who cannot attend our drop-in, because of geographical distance, financial issues, disability, or anxiety, the chance to meet and socialise with our community and access support online. They also run in the evening, giving people who work 9-5 the opportunity to join us more easily.
