SafeT have been working with young people from Yorkshire on a project which encourages them to exercise their rights. We are currently producing a short film - IT’S MY RIGHT
Follow the project on It's My Right (@TransRightsFilm) | Twitter
IT’S MY RIGHT will ensure that every young Trans viewer knows that they have a right to be themselves, in school, at college at work, at home, in hospital, in the street etc. This film will have viewers better informed and feeling able to challenge people who are so often misinforming young people;- colleagues, peers, teachers, medics, employers etc. Young people will be better equipped to deal with situations where people in authority have made the wrong call with regards to respecting their rights. It will also serve as a good information resource for people who work with and around young Trans people
IT’S MY RIGHT is funded/supported by:
We continue to run seminars in West Yorkshire to raise awareness about being Transgender. If you would like to be involved or if you would like to attend a seminar to learn more about Transgender please get in touch. The seminars are funded and supported by Yorkshire MESMAC and West Yorkshire Police Safer Communities Fund.
What people have said about our seminars......
“I feel I that I have a much deeper understanding of the issues and feelings which are involved”
“Fantastic and thank you so much to you all for sharing so much to help others. A brilliant day, so glad I came”
“Excellent presentation, told from the heart. Thanks for keeping it real”
Are you struggling with medical practitioner - A Dr ? A practice nurse or maybe your GP - everyone who is working for the NHS is required to treat Transgender people with dignity and respect. If you need guidance on how to complain then please get in touch. safeT have regular contact with the right people in the NHS who want to help make sure that all people have a positive experience of health care. If you have some good feedback about a service please let us know so we can let other people in your area know which services provide respectful treatment.
SafeT organise social events which aim to get people out and about, meeting others like themselves and taking part in healthy activities.
