Trans and Non-binary Support and Advice Service: 1 to 1 support sessions available
The aim of the service is to ensure that transgender and non-binary students who may need additional support are able to access this during their time at Loughborough University.
This service is led by Lisa Vine, an LGBT+ advocate, consultant and trainer based in Loughborough, who is also a Loughborough University alumna and previous Chair of Loughborough Student Union's LGBT+ Association. With almost eight years experience supporting transgender and non-binary children, teenagers and young adults, Lisa led a nationally recognised, award winning regional BBC Children in Need project based in Leicestershire.

As just a few examples, we cater to students needing specific advice or support regarding social and/or medical transition or disclosing their identity to others.
