Christ’s JCR provides a Gender Expression fund (currently at £150 per year) for trans, non-binary, questioning, and gender nonconforming students to purchase items to make them more comfortable with their gender presentation. This includes, but isn’t limited to, binders, packers, concealing underwear, and breast forms. We can also offer reimbursement to travel from Cambridge to Gender Identity Clinics.
Students make a purchase and send their receipts to the LGBT+ Officer who can reimburse them from the fund. We have a recommended maximum of £40 per student per year, but this can be adjusted on a case by case basis. Any application made is treated with the strictest confidentiality — to preserve this, the LGBT+ Officer gives anonymised receipts to the Treasurer, who reimburses the Officer. They will in turn pass on the money to the student in question. Just contact the LGBT+ Officer with any applications or questions! If you feel uncomfortable talking to the LGBT+ Officer, feel free to contact any other member of the Welfare team.
