Equality and Diversity

Transgender

In recent years there has been a significant increase in the number of young people identifying as transgender or as non binary. Although, attitudes towards LGBT+ people have become more accepting in recent years, young transgender people are particularly vulnerable and continue to experience disproportionate levels of mental ill health, bullying and abuse and are at a high risk of committing suicide.

The following resources can help you meet the needs of transgender young people and include sources of further information and support.
