Outreach

Reaching Out To Those Who Need Support
Gender Center provides a number of outreach services. These services are provided to individuals who do not have access to the organization’s services for transgender people. This inaccessibility may be due to some factors such as restriction to one’s home, confinement to a hospital, or any other correctional facilities. The outreach services are the best option for persons facing these challenges. In order to make outreach services effective and efficient, the organization has set aside a group of people. This group of people is responsible for the day to day provision and dispensation of these services. They make sure that the services reach everyone in their respective locations. The care and support needed by the clients are the major concern of the group. Thus, the delivery of the services is timely and efficient. The team also provides support to other specialist services. This extension of service has placed the organization at the frontline of providing support services for transgender people. The organization has also earned several referrals as a result of this extension of services to other units. The organization has a large number of outreach services it offers, which its clients enjoy. Some of the outreach services with which the clients are provided include the following. Secured sex equipment and safe methods of using them Information relating to your health and how to practice good and healthy living Information and details on housing and accommodation as well as referrals Home visits: these services are only rendered if there is a compulsory need for home services. The organization’s team of workers will see to it that the best services are provided. Prison and hospital visits: transgender or gender-diverse people are more susceptible to severe mental and emotional conditions in hospitals or prisons. While in these restricted areas, they suffer a lot of discrimination, which results in anger, fear, and anxiety. The experience is often displeasing and humiliating. However, Gender Center Outreach Services will help these individuals who do not have access to support services because of the confinement. Prison and hospital support services will not only provide the clients with the care and attention they need as gender-diverse people; they will also give them feelings of independence. The services will also improve their self-worth and sense of belonging. Therefore, getting a prison or hospital service is vital to the mental and emotional wellbeing and the existence of transgender people.

Outreach Services For Sex Workers Who Work At Night

Gender Center has made it a priority to provide outreach services to transgender sex workers who operate at night. These support services are carried out at specific locations and settings, including the streets of Darlinghurst. These services are often provided from 6 pm to midnight on Wednesdays.

Jail Outreach Services

These outreach services are available to transgender persons who are confined in a correctional centre. Clients in court and cell all have access to these services. The jail outreach services are very beneficial due to the hazards many transgender people encounter in cells and correctional centres. With these support services, these hazards are reduced or annihilated.
