Any agency or organisation working with young people can refer to The Amber Project (alternatively, young people can self-refer).
If you would like to refer a young person, or if you are wondering if a referral would be appropriate; please contact us at the office or download a referral form.
Youth Cymru and The Amber Project are working in partnership on this project for young people (aged 12-25) who identify as transgender, or are questioning their gender identity, and need support with their emotional well being..
We are currently running creative workshops for young people aged 12-16; these have a friendly, caring and supportive atmosphere, with the option to speak to a counsellor during the session.
The workshops take place weekly on a Thursday evening (4:30-6:30pm) at The Quaker Meeting House, 43 Charles Street, Cardiff, CF10 2GB. You can see our upcoming workshops here.
If you would like to know more about the project, please contact

Amber Awareness Talks
We offer short, informal workshops which raise awareness of our work.
We are very excited by our new poetry book, this has been written by the young people at The Amber Project and reflects their thoughts, feelings and experiences (see Publications for more details).
The project also produces a booklet for young people who self-harm, called 'Louder than Words' . This is about to be revised and is not currently available in paper form from the project . However, you can still access the old version on-line, just click here. view the booklet online.
