Scottish Government funded outcomes

Scottish Parliament

The Scottish Trans Alliance is currently funded by the Scottish Government Equality Unit to achieve three project outcomes:

Project Outcome 1

Government policy makers, equality organisations, and other employers and service providers are more informed about how to improve gender identity and gender reassignment equality, rights and inclusion through policy and good practice development.

For 2016-2017, some of the activities we are undertaking to achieve this outcome include:

  • Developing good practice guidance for employers and service providers
  • Providing trans awareness and equality training for public bodies
  • Carrying out research into thematic issues affecting trans people

Project Outcome 2

Transgender people are more informed, equipped and supported to engage with equality organisations, policy makers, service providers and employers on improving gender identity and gender reassignment equality, rights and inclusion.

For 2016-2017, some of the activities we are undertaking to achieve this outcome include:

  • Holding a Scottish Trans Health Conference to bring together trans people and health service providers to explore how to improve trans health equality.
  • Holding six skills development training sessions around Scotland for trans people interested in doing equality work
  • Holding four consultation events around Scotland together with an online survey to enable trans people to shape the development of our future trans equality work.

Project Outcome 3

An increase in accurate and positive visibility of transgender people’s experiences in Scotland.

For 2016-2017, some of the activities we are undertaking to achieve this outcome include:

  • Running, in partnership with the Scottish Queer International Film Festival, a four day film-making course for transgender people during November
  • Supporting the GLITCH Film Festival to have a film screening and discussion event by trans people of colour during March.
