The aim of this project was to gather information to assess the extent to which public bodies surveyed are aware of and are meeting their equality duties towards transsexual people; to identify the challenges and barriers that public bodies face in carrying out trans equality work and how they can be supported in overcoming these; and to collect and present case studies of good practice in relation to all transgender people. The findings of this project will be used by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (the Commission) in developing guidance for public bodies. The case studies included in this report will also enable public bodies to learn from other organisations' experiences and encourage them to drive forward practical changes to improve equality outcomes for trans people. The findings of the report are based on the analysis of 36 telephone interviews with and 60 online survey responses from a cross-section of English, Scottish and Welsh public bodies. The participants represent a snapshot of a variety of public bodies from a range of sectors and geographical areas, rather than a scientifically chosen, statistically representative sample. In order to identify good practice examples, the research also targeted public bodies known to have taken an interest in transgender work.
