SOFFA Marmalade


The SOFFA Marmalade group offers information and support for anyone supporting someone with gender issues.

The group is run by volunteers who have a Trans person in their family, and who can offer support to those who may or may not be struggling to come to terms with the issues surrounding having a Trans person in their family.  It offers a safe, non-judgemental space, in which to air any concerns, worries and to receive support and understanding.

Regular meetings take place once a month on a Saturday at different venues around the Midlands (Birmingham, Cannock and Bilbrook), and everyone is welcome, wether you are a partner, a parent, a family member, a friend or ally seeking information.  You can go along for a chat over a cuppa and have the opportunity to share your experiences, or just listen.  

Information about more personalised support, such as counselling services, can be provided, as well as copies of documents for GIRES (Gender Identity Research and Education Society), Depend, Mermaids, and many others.

For more information, or for details of when and where meetings are being held, please contact using the details provided.
