News – August 2011

Given changes in recent times and to respond to the growing membership of In-Trust, the members recently had a futures planning day. The overwhelming consensus was to continue to build upon the programmes of existing work, Transgender Equality Training, Volunteer Programme, Navajo Merseyside LGBT Charter mark, Rainbow Lives, Silver Pride and to work to support other groups and organisations across Merseyside in developing their work to support transgender people.

The network will now be adopting not only a new name, “In-Trust Merseyside” but also taking the structure of a social enterprise. In so doing the members believe they can ensure the long term sustainable future for the network for the benefit of transpeople who still remain in isolation and to ensure service providers understand the barriers which still exist for transpeople even with improved equalities legislation.
