   GIRES is a volunteer operated membership charity that, in collaboration with the other groups in its field, hears, helps, empowers and gives a voice to trans and gender non-conforming individuals, including those who are non-binary and non-gender, as well as their families. 

 

 GIRES uses evidence from these individuals' lived experiences, combined with scientific research into gender identity development, to educate all those who are able to improve their wellbeing. We contribute to policy development regarding equality and human rights for these individuals, especially in healthcare.

   

GIRES also delivers training, e-learning and information to public and private sector organisations, many of which are Corporate Members of the charity, for instance when a trans or gender non-conforming employee or student needs support.
