Report: Public Sector Engmt of Transsexual & Transgender People in Support of Equality Duties

Great new report from the Equality Network: the Scottish Transgender Alliance on public bodies/public sector agency duties to serve transsexual and transgendered people. The report discusses several findings that relate to serving people from the trans community.

According to the report, the project specifically "aimed to develop a better understanding of:
• public bodies’ awareness of their duties towards transsexual people
• public bodies’ current performance in meeting their existing duties towards transsexual people, and
• the extent to which they were considering the needs and experiences of the full range of transgender people when meeting their duties, in line with best practice" (p. 10).
