What we do to support Trans peopleHere are some of the steps we are taking to ensure our establishment is an accessible, welcoming, and safe space.
Gender neutral language
Staff take care to use gender neutral language, and try to remember to not assume pronouns. We are happy to be corrected if we slip up!
Be an ally
We are taking steps to educate ourselves on the issues faced by Trans people as a result of transphobia in UK policies, media narratives, and in healthcare. Then we’re using this knowledge to educate others and fight for Trans rights.
We recognise that marginalised identities can experience intersectional discrimination. Our staff actively challenge any discriminative behaviour or language, including transphobia, racism, homophobia, ableism, sexism, and religious discrimination.
We're here to help... and to learn
We won’t ask personal questions, but you can feel safe giving us any information we need to help you find what you need.
Creating a welcoming culture
All that said, not being personally transphobic does not automatically create a safe or comfortable space. We are creating systems, and working with our communities, to make spaces that are explicitly welcoming, safe, and dedicated to fighting transphobia.
