Edit: The sign-up form for this event is now closed. If you missed the deadline, please email us on hello@interconnecteduk.org , and we will do our best to offer you a place. Thank you.

We are delighted to invite you to our second residential peer support event. The two-day event (Saturday & Sunday) is for people with variations in sex characteristics / people with intersex traits*. Our aim is to create a safe space for connecting with others with similar experiences. 

The event will take place from Saturday 9th of March till Sunday the 10th of March afternoon 2023 in Birmingham. The exact details will be shared with participants only.

ICON UK will cover the costs of the venue, one night (Saturday to Sunday) accommodation and catering. We also offer scholarships up to GBP 80 for travel costs (refundable based on receipt for prebooked public transport economy class travel only). Please get in touch if you require further assistance with costs of travel, for example when travel by train or bus is not accessible for you. 

The venue is fully wheelchair accessible. Please get in touch to discuss any other access needs.

To ensure that everyone has an enjoyable and worthwhile time, we will all follow the house rules below: 

1 – Confidentiality

At all times, respect each other’s privacy. By default, do not share any identifiable information about each other.

2 – Allowing

Everyone is on their own journey. We come from diverse backgrounds. We describe our experiences differently. We have different identities. Celebrate what we have in common and respect other’s differences. Let’s support each other as we figure things out for ourselves.

3 – Self-care

There is no right or wrong way to experience the event. Share what you want when you want. No one is trapped. Take a break as and when you need one.  Honour your limits at all times.

If you are interested in attending the event, please fill out this sign-up form, and we will get in touch ASAP. 

If you have any questions – please write to us at hello@interconnecteduk.org 

We hope to hear from you soon!
