Transgender awareness in child and family social work education

In January 2016 the Women and Equalities Committee published a report on Transgender Equality. In this report evidence was identified that suggested transgender people experience significant levels of inequality across a wide range of policy areas. This included inequality in the provision of public services, where evidence of discrimination and transphobia were identified within schools, social services, the NHS, prisons and probation services, and the police.
