Mermaids UK

Description:

Mermaids is a support group for gender variant children and teenagers, and their families. Our goal is to relieve the mental and emotional stress of all persons aged 19 years and under who are in any manner affected by gender identity issues, and their families and to advance public education in the same.

This is what Mermaids advocates: Let the child develop as he or she is naturally meant to, whilst loving and accepting them for who they are at the present time. Childhood is precious, and children should be allowed to enjoy it to the full.

In support of this we:

  • Offer support to parents, families, carers and others.
  • Raise awareness about gender issues amongst professionals (e.g. teachers, doctors, social services. etc.,) and the general public
  • Campaign for the recognition of this issue and an increase in professional services
