Transgender Action Plan to Tackle Barriers to Equality in Wales


Transgender people in Wales need more support as they face bullying and barriers in many areas of life, the communities minister has said.

Lesley Griffiths has launched a Transgender Action Plan following consultation and focus groups.

Health, housing and sport have been named as key areas where action was needed to remove barriers, she said.

Young people will be made more aware of transgender issues, and action will be taken to reduce hate crime and abuse. More people are identifying themselves as transgender at a younger age, the plan notes, quoting a report which suggests they could account for 1% of a school's pupils.
