19 Dec Intercom’s Statement on the Government’s Draft ‘Guidance for Schools and Colleges: Gender Questioning Children’
Following a long wait and several delays, the UK Government have today, 19th December, released their draft ‘Guidance for Schools and Colleges: Gender Questioning Children’.
The school’s guidance released today is a consultation. No changes will be implemented at this stage.
The responses to this consultation will be important for members of our LGBT+ communities to have their voice heard.
Intercom will be here in 2024 to support you if you are distressed by today’s news, and will always stand by our LGBT+ communities in the South West and beyond. The consultation remains open until 12th March 2024.
Our Helpline is open from 9am-4pm until Friday 22nd December if you need to talk this news through with us. Intercom will reopen on Tuesday 2nd January. If you need support during the festive season, go to our ‘Resources’ page on our website.
We look forward to working with our LGBT+ communities in the new year to ensure their voices are heard and included within this consultation.
