This consultation has now concluded. Updates on the next steps can be found at the bottom of this page.

Bristol City Council is developing a new policy to provide clarity on how best to support trans and gender-diverse service users and citizens, as well as making sure other characteristics including sex-based protections are correctly and lawfully accounted for in any approach we take.

This policy will set out our overall approach, and individual council departments may still need to develop specific procedures and pathways to support trans people to access their services.

Why are we consulting?

We’ve committed publishing a new policy in 2022-23 and as part of our process we’re consulting to make sure we’re hearing all voices, that we have a clear understanding of the potential equality impact of our proposed policy approach, and that people have the chance to provide their views to support the Council to identify and rectify any gaps, issues, or ambiguities in our draft policy.

Our draft policy is available for consultation from 26 August until 9 October 2022.

Please read the draft policy and supporting equality impact assessment. To give us feedback you can complete an online survey or send comments directly to equalities.team@bristol.gov.uk
