New Toolkit on Transphobic Bullying in Schools

The British Home Office has commissioned the Gender Identity Research and Education Society (GIRES) to develop a toolkit for combating transphobic bullying in schools.

GIRES has consulted widely in preparing this material and has already incorporated most of the good suggestions generated by that process into the current version of the document. The consultation process is ongoing and GIRES will be very happy to receive further suggestions for improving the material.

There are currently two versions of the toolkit. The first is designed for easy internet navigability and contains hyperlinks to other material within the toolkit and located externally. The second is an easy to print version. Like all GIRES material, the toolkit is subject to the charity's copyright policy however, schools, as well as other organisations, are specifically permitted to use it, in whole or in part, for internal discussion and teaching.

Both versions together with other resources for schools can be accessed from this page of our website.
