Help and support for the transgender community

Female to Male (FTM)

F.T.M. is the generally recognised abbreviation for “female-to-male” transgender people, who experience a sense of gender dysphoria from living in a body which is incongruent with their preferred identity.

Female to Male (FTM)

FTM people are assigned female at birth, but wish to present as Male either on a temporary or permanent basis, depending on the degree of their dysphoria.

The Female to male portion of the transgender spectrum can sometimes be a under-represented on the internet and it can be difficult for people who identify in this category to find useful sources of information. For this reason, we have created this page of links, which we’ll update as we find more sources ourselves as well as working with other groups to establish support meetings for you.

New Trans+ Helpline

The south west region of the Charity Mind is opening a confidential helpline to support those who identify as Trans, their families and friends. From Friday 10th February 2017 the service will be available on Mondays and Fridays 8pm – Midnight. The call-handlers (many of whom are trans) have been extensively trained and will ensure it is a safe place to talk. If you, or someone you know, is in distress it can make a real difference to talk to someone about how you feel. You will be able to talk anonymously in complete confidence. If you need someone to talk to call the Trans + Mindline: 0300 330 5468
