What is THE Action Youth?

‘THE’ stands for Trans* Health Education. This group is specifically focused on gender identity which enables young people to realise that they are not the only ones who feel this way. It can also provide you with specific and relevant information to meet your needs.

THE Action Youth provides a safe space to express and explore yourself in an understanding and accepting environment. You will be surrounded by like-minded people who are willing to share their experiences and provide peer support.


Who is THE Action Youth for?

Anyone aged 11-18 whose gender identity is different to how others see it, or is questioning their gender identity.

This could be someone whose gender identity does not match their biological sex.

Supporting you…

Staff qualified in Youth work, Social work and Information Advice and Guidance will facilitate a range of session based on the needs you have.

This may include:

  • Medical transition and access to medical services
  • Exploring who you are
  • Overcoming difficulties in school
  • How to talk to your family about being trans*
  • Coping with dysphoria (unhappiness with your body and gender not matching)
  • Breaking down isolation


Wednesday's 4:30pm – 6:00pm at YPAS's Central Hub - ​36 Bolton Street, Liverpool, L3 5LX.
We offer 1 to 1 support outside of the group space. You can ask a worker for an appointment for support.
Your confidential information is important to you and us. We may have to ask for parental consent (if under 16) for you to take part in some of our work. Where necessary we will not mention your identity or the specific name of the group you are accessing.

If we think you are at significant risk of harm we may have to use your emergency contact details too but we would only do this in a way that had your consent. Generally speaking it is up to you if you want to tell anyone you are attending. We encourage you to eventually open up about it as there is nothing to be ashamed of.
There is no referral needed for attending TAY groups.
