Working with older trans people: practice tool

Paul Willis, Michael Toze, Trish Hafford-Letchfield

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


Reflect on how your practice can be inclusive and responsive to the needs and wishes of transgender (trans) people in later life. An integral part of social care practice is the protection and promotion of the rights of people with care and support needs and ensuring that people are not excluded or discriminated against. A new Practice Tool is designed to encourage practitioners to start thinking about supporting older trans people who may draw on services related to ageing and social care. Aimed at helping improve knowledge and confidence for practice, it includes an overview of terminology, top tips for developing skills for providing care and support for older trans people, and reflective tools.
