Trans Awareness Week: 13-19 November 2023
Trans* Awareness Week takes place this week, culminating in Trans Day of Remembrance, which honours the memory of those whole lives have been lost due to act of anti-transgender violence.
This week is an opportunity to show support and celebrate the transgender community, as well as raising awareness of the discrimination experienced by transgender people worldwide.
At Berkshire Healthcare, it is our priority to ensure the Trust is an inclusive, welcoming, and safe space for all, a place where everyone is treated with respect and a place where everyone can be their true self.
