We currently deliver a monthly parent group - Proud Parents: 
The group aims to support common parenting themes and concerns, as well as LGBTQ+ specific issues such as: 

  • Supporting your child in coming out
  • Supporting your child through their transition
  • Working effectively with your child’s school
  • Discussing sexualities and genders with your child
  • Coping with bullying

Proud Parents - supporting parents of LGBTQ+ children 

Meets the first Monday of every month (unless otherwise stated) in the Clapham Junction area 6pm-8pm (we do not advertise our address to safeguard our groups). 

From 6pm-7pm we have a specific focus on trans and gender topics and from 7pm-8pm the focus is on sexuality.

Parent feedback

I am the mother of an 11 year old transgender boy who has lived (for most purposes) as a male since toddlerhood but transitioned at his all-girls school only last September. Nicki has provided invaluable support and advice to my son and to me over the past year or so. We both love Nicki and trust her implicitly. My son in particular really opens up to her and seems actually to listen to her gentle suggestions! She is highly professional, exceptionally well-informed and trained, and thoroughly in touch with the needs and concerns of LGBTQ+ young people and the community in general. More importantly, she is a warm, genuine, respectful, intelligent and intuitive person, who has transformed the lives of many LGBTQ+ young people who come to her, often in circumstances where there is nowhere else to turn. She is like a surrogate parent, street-smart older sibling and wise community leader combined!
