    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    "Dear Mum and Dad,
    this is the hardest this I have ever done... I don't want to hurt you... I love you so much... I don't want to disappoint you... I hope that you will understand... I am still the same person inside, but I can't pretend any longer because it will kill me... "

    Coming out to a parent as transgender* can such a hard thing for a person to do. The older, the tougher?...I really can't say.

    Post puberty hormones may have already started to complicate your gender identity presentation. Relationships will change. Self esteem will fall, and gender dysphoria will affect your mental health.

    Some children will transition very young, but they will still face ignorance & prejudice. Parents will be the ones to safeguard them, & ensure that their learning & social environments are conducive to fulfilling their potential.

    THERE CAN BE HAPPY ENDINGS as many of us will testify.

    We can't kiss them better because they aren't broken.

    We may struggle with conflicting, uncomfortable feelings.

    THAT'S WHY NPACT NEEDS YOU!

    As parents & carers of trans* children we want to support each other, so that we can support our children to be happy, healthy individuals.

    We want to:

    - inform & signpost families;
    - advocate when things get tough;

    - create safe places, to work, to learn, to play:
    - have family days out where grown-ups can relax, & our children can be themselves;
    - safe pubs, clubs, restaurants for adult children;

    - to offer talks in schools;
    - to make front line services like GP surgeries and hospitals more welcoming for our trans children.

    To achieve all this, one step at a time, we need funds.

    Thank you for your interest. Your time is appreciated. We hope you can help.

        Northants-EastofEngland PACT

        Northants, Lincs, Cambs, Leics, Beds

        NPACT was created by a member who found herself in a bit of a pickle of confusion when her child came out as transgender. She looked for local support, found none, & set up this group as a result, in February 2016. She talked with other parents & she felt a whole lot better!
