The Trans and Non-Binary Best Practice Working Group was set up by Stand Against Racism & Inequality, bringing together NHS and third sector organisations to produce best practice guidance for health and wellbeing practitioners supporting trans or non-binary clients. The working group acknowledged the social and health inequalities faced by trans and non-binary people and the risks of them disengaging with services when they do not feel seen, heard or understood. They also recognised the competing training demands on health and wellbeing practitioner's time. This guidance was identified as an accessible introduction for staff that can be shared at scale whilst also helping families and carers. Importantly, the working group was led and informed by the voices of those affected, so this guidance represents a range of trans and non-binary contributions, both personal and on behalf of local organisations.
