Referrals soar at Australia's only clinic for transgender youth as support programs get fresh funding

Youth worker and transgender man Jeremy Wiggins says a change in society's attitudes could be behind the rise in the number of people seeking help.

"In 2013, the Royal Children's Hospital saw the same number of young people in that one year than the previous 10 years combined," he told 7.30.

"The Royal Children's Hospital expects a 50 per cent increase by the end of 2014.

"In the last couple of years I think there's been a really great change socially, there's more acceptance.

"And we're in this really interesting time now where there's more people accessing services and affirming their identity, and right now we need to build some support services around them."
