Transgender Awareness Training

What is Trans*Form?

Since 2014, Youth Cymru has delivered Trans*Form 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.

The project is underpinned by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child and supports organisations to develop and strengthen trans-inclusive policy and practice, though information, guidance and training.

The project was shortlisted at the Welsh Government Youth Work Excellence Awards (2016).
