We’re proud to be a trans-inclusive women’s organisation!
Our Board of Trustees agreed our trans-inclusion policy on 1st June 1998, although trans women were positively accessing the Centre for many years before that date.
Our decision to adopt a trans-inclusion policy was taken in line with our commitment to anti-oppressive and anti-discriminatory practice and in line with the Equality Act 2010. This recognises gender reassignment as a protected characteristic. To be covered by this you can be at any stage in the transition process – from proposing to reassign your gender to undergoing a process to reassign your gender or having completed it.
Support and resources for trans people
If you’re looking for local support as a trans person including where to access trans-friendly services, support groups and resources then make sure you check out our partners – Notts LGBT+ Network and Notts Trans Hub – who both offer extensive knowledge and up-to-date information.
NWC staff include our preferred pronouns on our email signoffs and anywhere where we include our names. Why? Well we believe that using someone’s correct personal pronouns is a way to respect them and create an inclusive environment, just as using a person’s name can be a way to respect them.
