Transgender awareness in child and family social work

The Department for Education (DfE) has published research looking at evidence for transgender awareness in child and family social work in England. Findings from a rapid evidence review of literature; a content analysis of a sample of social work courses and semi-structured interviews with stakeholders include: the limited research identified suggests that transgender people commonly report having poor experiences within social and care settings; a lack of evidence around the inclusion of transgender issues in social work education in England; and interviews with stakeholders suggest that transgender people continue to have poor experiences when in contact with child and family social services.
