A) Planning From The Margins- To ensure that the services we provide are effective and make best use of resource, we need to identify what we could be doing better for those that are most marginalised and face barriers to access. This workshop will look at the barriers trans people face (identified in Transforming Outcomes) and the practical steps groups and organisations can take to learn more about the communities they serve, including effective Trans Status Monitoring.
Delivered by Heather Williams, Assistant Director - Insight, LGBT Foundation
& Laurence Webb, Pride in Practice Manager, LGBT Foundation
B) The Principles of Co-production- What can service providers and commissioners learn from the innovative ways in which trans people have organised, coordinated and supported one another? Whether providing services or accessing them, join us to explore steps to working together to co-design effective services that appropriately target and meet the specific needs of trans people.
Delivered By Louie Stafford, Trans Programme Coordinator, LGBT Foundation,
