Event raises awareness of transgender issues

CPFT has marked Transgender Awareness Week (13-19 Nov) with a special exhibition. 

It took place at the Cavell Centre in Peterborough today (15 Nov) as part of a national campaign to improve the visibility of transgender people and highlight the issues they often face. 

The campaign runs until Transgender Day of Remembrance on 20 November to remember which is a day to remember and mourn all the transgender people lost to violence.  

Resources have also been made available to CPFT staff this week, which includes advice on how to be a supportive ally. 

Nora O’Shea, Wellbeing Co-ordinator & LGBTQ+ Chair said: "The day was about raising visibility of transgender people and sharing some knowledge, support and guidance with our colleagues. As an Ally, I felt it very important to support this awareness week. Thank's to everyone who came along".
