Trans*Form: Charter Launch

The Charter Launch

The Trans*Form Charter has been written by young people from the Trans*Form Steering Group. It has been created in line with the United Nations’ Convention on the Rights of the Child and establishes a number of rights belonging to trans* young people and their expectations of organisations to ensure that these rights are met.

The Charter was formally launched by Lesley Griffiths, Minister for Communities and Tackling Poverty at an event in Cardiff Bay on 3rd December 2015.

Minister for Communities and Tackling Poverty, Lesley Griffiths, said:

“I want a Wales where every young person is able to enjoy their rights, and where they are supported to reach their full potential. This is why the Charter and the Trans*Form Cymru toolkit are so important, containing helpful guidance and resources to help youth-facing organisations honour the rights of young trans* people. I encourage all organisations to commit to the Charter and do all they can to promote equality and diversity.”

Young people from the Steering Group shared the Trans*Form documentary and spoke about their experiences of education, healthcare and their hopes for the future.
