Transgender Policy for Prisons Launched



A Transgender Policy for Prison was launched. The advocacy work by Aditus, MGRM and Rainbow Support Service led to this policy which amongst other provides that:

1) Trans-inmates could be initially accommodated in separate facilities for an assessment but this could not last longer than seven days.

2) Inmates would have the right to access the procedures of gender recognition, health services and mental health support"

3) Prison Staff would receive additional training and information on human diversity and gender identity.

4) Rubdowns and searches would be carried out by a prison official of the appropriate gender.
