Quick Exit

Under-12s group (online advice for children and families)

It’s totally normal for children to have questions about their gender identity – and we want to help you support them to find answers that make sense for who they are.

Our new under-12s group is a safe and supportive space for 8 to 12-year-olds and their families. You and your child can ask questions, make friends and have fun. We don’t believe any child should look or act a certain way, whatever their gender, and we’re here to help you give them the confidence to be who they are.

Our under-12s group meets in a different Kent location once a month. Want to come along? Email beyou@porchlight.org.uk and we’ll send information about how to join.
