In December 2011, the Government published “Advancing transgender equality: a plan for action,” the first ever Government transgender equality action plan. This plan includes firm cross-Government commitments to be delivered throughout the lifetime of this Parliament. It outlines the actions Government will take to improve the lives of transgender people in all areas of public policy, including in education, employment, hate crime, and health and social care.

The Government will continue to work with and support public bodies, businesses, practitioners and the voluntary sector throughout the delivery of the commitments included.
