Scottish Government funded project outcomes

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

The project outcomes relate to trans equality policy work, trans community engagement, and trans visibility.

Project Outcome One - Policy

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.

Some of the activities we do to achieve this outcome include:

  • Developing good practice guidance for employers and service providers
  • Providing trans awareness and equality training for public bodies
  • Responding to Government consultations
  • Attending equality meetings with public bodies
  • Carrying out research into issues affecting trans people

Project Outcome Two - Community Engagement

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.

Some of the activities we do to achieve this outcome include:

  • Organising national conferences, roundtables and other forums to bring together trans people, policy makers, service providers and others to explore how to improve trans equality
  • Delivering skills development training sessions for trans people interested in doing equality work
  • Running consultation events and online surveys to enable trans people to shape our future trans equality work

Project Outcome Three - Visibility

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

Some of the activities we do to achieve this outcome include:

  • Supporting trans people to celebrate Trans Day of Visibility on 31 March each year
  • Supporting trans people to be visible during Pride events across Scotland
  • Running creative arts courses to empower trans people to express themselves
  • Organising living library events
  • Creating short films about trans equality issues
  • Proactively publicly speaking up for trans equality
  • Responding to media enquiries
