COMMUNITY ORGANISATION AWARD FOR LGBT –
SAIL has been supporting the family members of transgender, non-binary and questioning people across Northern Ireland since 2008 and now provides reassurance, advice and support to over 300 families across the region. They run a family support service for trans people of all ages, and provide specialist guidance for those with children, siblings and partners who are coming out or transitioning. SAIL has been a leading developer of policy and best practice for employers, educators and healthcare providers for years, and is a key stakeholder in representing the needs of trans people to government at all levels. This impressive organisation has developed specialist guidelines for health professionals, schools and employers to further the rights and needs of trans people. SAIL have listened to those who were ignored, walked beside those who felt alone, and championed those who have been mistreated.
