LGBT+ Inclusion Guidance
Trans Inclusion in Schools
Our friends at Allsorts Youth Project have created the Trans Inclusion Schools Toolkit. The toolkit provides information and guidance to schools and colleges on how to effectively support trans, non-binary and gender questioning students.
You can find the Trans Inclusion Schools Toolkit on Allsorts’ website – click here to find out more.
TRANS INCLUSIVE RESIDENTIALS
Our friends at Gendered Intelligence have created guidance to support professionals who work with young people on how to run residentials that are inclusive for young trans people.
The 24-page guidance includes strategies for residentials that prioritise the physical and emotional safety of every young person, centre consent and avoiding reinforcing gender stereotypes. It covers a wide range of areas from changing facilities and sleeping arrangements to outdoor activities and residentials abroad. It also provides guidance on how to support young people once the residential has come to an end.

Parents, carers and friends are able to ask questions and demystify what LGBT+ youth provisions offer and do. LGBT+ young people feel better supported and are often empowered from these events.
