Since 2014, Youth Cymru has delivered TransForm Cymru, a ground-breaking project supporting trans and non-binary young people to take action on their passions, concerns and aspirations.

Trans young people have created their own film and theatre projects, met with senior Welsh Government decision-makers, advised the media on positive trans representation and presented at national conferences and events.
