Nottingham Women’s Centre – New Trans Inclusion Policy

The centre have been welcoming trans women for 18 years now, however the policy needed an update to consider non-binary people and changes in language. They recently rolled out the new policy with supportive training to staff, so trans people should feel confidence in their approach to inclusion.
