This practice guidance is designed to help practitioners to start thinking about supporting older trans (transgender) people who may draw on services related to ageing and social care. The briefing encourages practitioners to reflect on how they can make their practice more transinclusive and responsive to the needs and wishes of trans people in later life. The aim of this toolkit is to:
> Improve the awareness and professional confidence of practitioners in order to build positive relationships when working with older trans people.
> Provide contemporary evidence on supporting trans people in later life.
> Extend practitioners’ knowledge of current key terms, issues and considerations that contribute to anti-discriminatory practice with older trans people.
> Facilitate critical reflection and reflective learning for practitioners and their teams on providing inclusive, person-centred support to older trans people and their significant others.
