        THE Clare Project has a new chair, Dr Sam Hall. Taking up the position, Sam said: "I am proud to have been chosen to represent the Clare Project. It has a vital role to play, not only providing a place where the trans community can come together but also as a voice representing that community in the wider world."
        Sam takes over from Steph Scott who has been chair for eight years. The Clare Project committee acknowledged the tireless work that Steph has done to make the Clare Project a respected organisation committed to improving the lives of transgender people in Brighton and beyond.

        THE CLARE PROJECT is a self supporting group based in Brighton and Hove open to anyone wishing to explore issues around gender identity.

        Our main activity is our weekly DROP-IN every Tuesday, which aims to provide a safe and confidential place for people to meet with others who share their life experiences, and find information, support and companionship. A facilitator and a psychotherapist are at the drop-in each Tuesday.

        Whilst the group is mainly attended by transgender, transsexual and gender dysphoric people, we aim to be all-inclusive as we recognise the complexities surrounding the issue of gender identity. We have no religious affiliation.

        It's best if you can contact us directly at the Tuesday afternoon drop-in. Here's the address:
