The Clare Project Tuesday drop-in is a weekly space that has been running for over 15 years. It is a space where trans, non-binary, intersex, gender-variant and gender-questioning people can come along to connect with each other, chat and find out more about local support services.

You do not need to inform us before coming along, but if you are feeling nervous, please do feel free to get in touch with us and we can arrange for you to meet with a facilitator beforehand who will introduce you to the space and answer your questions. You can also have a look at our group agreement to find out a little more about how we try and keep the space as safe as possible for everyone attending.

The set-up of the drop-in is informal. There is an area with tea, coffee and snacks, a social space with tables and chairs for people to sit and chat with one another, an activities table for people that prefer to do art or play games and quiet spaces where you can relax. There is also the option to sit outdoors in Dorset Gardens.

Our facilitators are all trans, non-binary or gender variant individuals who are there to help keep the space safe, to answer any questions you might have and to talk to you about our services or direct you to other local support options. If you are feeling nervous, please try and approach one of us and we will be happy to sit and chat with you.

At the drop-in you can expect to find around 20 participants and three members of Clare Project staff.
