Trans Fund

We're happy to announce the introduction of a Trans Fund

Being trans, non-binary or questioning your gender identity can be a cause of financial stress, due to the purchasing of new clothes for your gender identity, buying necessities such as binders or expensive dead poll applications for legal name changes. All these things can improve the quality of life for trans, non-binary and gender questioning people immensely, and that is something we hope the trans fund will be able to help with

Testimonial


I feel the trans fund is a brilliant way to support students who have or are facing issues with their gender identity, allowing them to explore themselves with gender-affirming items without the financial burden that can often be associated with it due to the expensive nature of some products. This can be especially true for students without support from parents and need to carefully manage their finances to simply survive, providing a boost to their mental health and allowing them to try and live more comfortably." - Student who accessed the fund.
