Working with Trans, Gender Variant and Non-Binary Young People

We are receiving an increasing number of requests from schools, and other organisations, to guide them appropriately to support any trans, gender variant or non-binary children or young people accessing their services. These requests tend to be reactive, in response to a young person "coming out". We believe that a proactive approach is needed, having the systems, support and knowledge in place, acknowledging the inevitability that a trans, gender variant or non-binary child or young person is already attending your school, or accessing your provision.
