New gender support group is launched

A NEW support group for people facing up to issues around their gender has formed in Hartlepool.

T-Time is open to anyone aged over 16 who are trans-sexual or are questioning their gender identity.

It is run by Jack Cummings, who was recently appointed as the trans development officer for the Tees Valley area with funding from the People’s Health Lottery.

Jack said: “This funding has had a positive impact on the service that Hart Gables is able to provide the lesbian, gay, bi and trans-sexual community.

“It has enabled Hart Gables to provide a worker and a safe space for the T-Time group to take place.”

The group meet every Tuesday from 6pm to 9pm from the Hart Gables Centre, which at 220 York Road Hartlepool.

All members of the trans community are welcome.
