New over-55 support worker for Gender Centre, Petersham
If you’re a transgender person or gender questioning and aged over 55 and find yourself in need of support, take heart, the Gender Centre has received funding for a new support person specifically catering to your needs.
The new support worker, Laurel Walter, will be available for appointments from Tuesday – Friday from 9am-430pm.
Walter says the support service is ideal for anyone that is feeling intimidated by, or uncomfortable with, negotiating their way through mainstream services. She says the Gender Centre can also provide support in residential care, assist with health checks or generally just provide a safe space to talk.
Walter says the centre will also be holding an over 55 Support Group on the second Thursday of each month. The next meeting is on Thursdays November 14.
If you would like to attend, call the Gender Centre on 9569 2366 or outside Sydney call If 1800 069 115
