Transgender youth support charity Mermaids is under investigation by The Charity Commission over safeguarding concerns.

The regulatory body for charities in England and Wales says it has received complaints following reports in The Telegraph concerning the supply of chest-binding devices to teenagers.

It is investigating whether the charity has complied with regulations.

Mermaids said it would respond in "due course".

A trustee of the charity Mermaids has resigned after reports he spoke at a conference organised by a group that promotes support for paedophiles.

 

Dr Jacob Breslow quit the transgender children's charity after the Times revealed he had attended the B4U-ACT conference in 2011, as a PhD student.

B4U-ACT calls for paedophiles to have the right to live "in truth and dignity".

Mermaids says the organisation is "completely at odds" with its values.

B4U-ACT's website says it holds workshops and gives presentations about the needs and rights of people "with an attraction to children and adolescents", and runs support groups for both them and their friends and family members.

A published summary of a presentation Dr Breslow is understood to have given uses the phrase "minor-attracted persons" instead of paedophile.

Thin end of a wedge.

"Parents of children who have used the transgender youth charity Mermaids have complained to the watchdog after a worker posted explicit images and sexualised pictures “as a schoolgirl” online.

Darren Mew, digital engagement officer at the children’s charity and who identifies as “they/them”, posted an image of himself on Instagram with an upwards view through his short skirt with the words “Sorry I can’t hear you. I’m just out here living my fantasy” and the hashtag “nonbinaryfinery”.

Letting foxes run the hen house is never going to end well.
