My name is Aedan James Wolton, I am a group facilitator, one-to-one mentor, trainer and educator. I provide advice and support to trans*/gender-variant youth, as well as training for employers, schools and care professionals on trans* issues.
Currently, I’m studying towards an undergraduate degree in Social Work at Goldsmiths, University of London and recently took on the role of Organiser for the TG 2014 conference at The University of East Anglia. I am a qualified Sexual Health Trainer and for the last two years I have worked in various East London boroughs for the Terrence Higgins Trust, providing sexual health information and free chlamydia and gonorrhea screens to young people in the area. I also work for the West London Gay Men’s Project providing rapid HIV testing and outreach services to MSM and trans* people. I am involved (in a voluntary capacity) in service delivery at CliniQ in Soho; the UK’s only dedicated weekly clinic for Trans* people, their families, friends and significant others.
I am experienced in the designing and delivering of bespoke lgbt/trans* awareness training & sexual health workshops for minority groups (the trans* community in particular). I provide consultancy & services independently, but also through the following organisations:
- Evolve @ The Mancroft Advice Project (Norwich)
- The Barbara Ross Association (Norwich)
- The West London Trans* Group
- CliniQ @ 56 Dean Street (Soho, London)
Outside of my professional life I enjoy social media, playing the ukulele and attempting to grow vegetables on a small patch of concrete in North London.
