The location of all the meeting centres is confidential
If you are interested in joining a group then first of all speak to the office team who will run through some questions with you to determine which group is most appropriate for you.
You will then be contacted by one of our facilitators who will arrange a face to face chat with you in a coffee shop or similar so that you have a familiar face and voice to meet you when you attend your first group.
The location of the meetings is only disclosed by the facilitators after they have had this chat, this is for the safety and privacy of all group attendees. Chrysalis recognises that not everyone can be out and would never expect you to conform to any kind of gender expression however we will undertake to always strive to get your name and pronouns right.
