Are You Team TENI?


With the passage of the monumental Gender Recognition Bill, TENI are now gearing up for the next phase in making Ireland a more inclusive place for trans people. Will you join them?



A big part of what TENI does is advocate for trans rights, but they are also a vital lifeline for trans people in need.


  • This year TENI have been contacted over 200 times by trans people in crisis – and have been there to provide support, information and referrals.
  • People often come to TENI looking for someone to listen without judgement. This year TENI has been contacted nearly 1,000 times by individuals looking for general support

  • Trans people are coming out at younger and younger ages. This year TENI has been contacted 200 times by families who are looking for support for their trans child and they’ve been here to offer it. 

  • Trans friendly and accessible healthcare is vital. Since 2013, TENI has delivered 78 trainings to 3,500 medical professionals, including psychological/psychiatric services, general practitioners, frontline hospital staff and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS).

  • This year TENI co-hosted the first ever Trans Youth Forum in Ireland which was attended by 50 young people aged 14-25. They also co-hosted the second family residential weekend which brought together the families of trans people from across Ireland.
