Meet and connect!

We are delighted to invite you to the first residential peer support event hosted by Interconnected (ICON) UK. 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 in late March 2023 in Birmingham. The exact details will be shared with participants only.

ICON UK will cover the costs of the venue, accommodation and catering. ICON UK can contribute to your travel costs. Please get in touch if you require further information or assistance with costs or travel.

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

 In order to reserve a place, however, you will need to pay a deposit. The deposit will be refunded to you in full at the event, but forfeited if you do not attend without notice and a place is wasted

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!
