Hello everyone & welcome to the Merkle Pride 2019 Money Pot.
This year we'll be raising funds to support Mermaids, a charity that supports children and young people up to 20 years old who are transgender and/or gender diverse, their families and the professionals involved in their care.
With your donation you'll be helping Mermaids:
Reducing isolation and loneliness for gender variant and transgender children, young people and their families.
Empowering families and young people with the tools they need to negotiate the education and health services.
Reducing suicidality and self-harm in the young people who contact Mermaids, equip their parents to support their children to the same end.
Improving self-esteem and social functioning in gender variant and transgender children, young people.
Improving awareness, understanding and practices of GP’s, CAMHS, Social Services and other professionals.
Your gift today makes a big difference tomorrow and every day!
