Scottish Government funded STA outcomes

Scottish Parliament

The Scottish Transgender 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 2015-2016, 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 2015-2016, some of the activities we are undertaking to achieve this outcome include:

  • Holding a Scottish Trans Employment Conference to bring together trans people, potential employers, skills development services, trade unions and other relevant bodies
  • Holding six skills development training sessions around Scotland for trans people interested in doing equality work
  • Assisting the National Gender Identity Clinical Network for Scotland (NGICNS) to engage widely with trans people across Scotland to improve NHS gender identity services

Project Outcome 3

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

For 2015-2016, some of the activities we are undertaking to achieve this outcome include:
