Diversity Trust Announces Major Trans Health Needs Survey

The spring edition of the Diversity Trust newsletter is now available. You can read and download it here. As usual there is plenty of good stuff in it, but the big news is all the way back on page 16. We have been commissioned by Healthwatch to undertake a survey of the health needs of trans people in the Bath & North East Somerset, Bristol, North Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire areas. Some person called Cheryl Morgan is quoted as saying:

As a trans woman I know just how badly this work is needed. I’m very grateful to Healthwatch for their support, and delighted that this project will involve trans people at every stage of its design and delivery.

Now I guess Berkeley and I have a lot of work to do.

Obviously there will be a survey at some point so we can collect people’s experiences. Also I will make sure that we cover non-binary and intersex people’s needs. If anyone has any specific ideas about what should be done please do get in touch, either here or via info@diversitytrust.org.uk.
