We are able to provide a wellbeing check for any trans, gender diverse, or gender questioning person living in rural SA.
A trans, gender diverse, or gender questioning person may request to receive a call from a peer worker to check in and see how they are doing and follow up calls may also be organised as needed during the initial conversation.
A professional or another person supporting a trans, gender diverse, or gender questioning person may request a wellbeing check with the consent of the person being called.
We will require a name, phone number, and a confirmation of consent. Gender Connect Country SA will call the client between 5pm and 6pm or during service hours.
*Please let us know if the person receiving the call does not want us to leave a voice message should they not answer.
