Rural & Regional Support
The Gender Centre is a state wide support service and as such we provide support to all Rural and Regional areas within NSW.
We support rural and regional transgender and gender diverse individuals in a number of ways. We conduct outreach clinics, where there is a mix of casework and counselling provided. Our outreach clinics are available in a number of areas, including Orange, Dubbo, Greater Western Sydney Blue Mountains, Hawksberry, Illawara area ,Central Coast and the Hunter region .We also have educational training for schools and workplaces in regional areas that have transgender employees and students.
Through this training, we are better able to equip schools and workplaces with the knowledge required to successfully and respectfully integrate transgender people. We are able to provide this support as soon as an individual makes known their gender identity, so as to make the transition a much smoother process. We are also able to provide phone and Skype counselling, as well as refer clients to local GPs, psychiatrists and psychologists that would be able to meet their needs and provide sustainable and local support for them. Whilst our headquarters is based in Sydney, our website provides a significant amount of information for people at all stages of their journey, and our case workers are always happy to have phone consultations and provide support in whatever way possible to clients.
Phone support and networking with other service providers is also available to you to assist you with your needs.
