UPDATES ON GENDERED INTELLIGENCE AND COVID-19
About Gendered Intelligence
Everyone can be more intelligent about gender.
Gendered Intelligence is a not-for-profit charity, established in 2008.
We work with the trans community and those who impact on trans lives; we particularly specialise in supporting young trans people under the age of 21.
We deliver trans youth programmes, support for parents and carers, professional development and trans awareness training for all sectors and educational workshops for schools, colleges, Universities and other educational settings.
Our mission is to increase understandings of gender diversity.
Our vision is of a world where people are no longer constrained by narrow perceptions and expectations of gender, and where diverse gender expressions are visible and valued.

Trans Inclusive Residentials - new guidance
Trans Inclusive Residentials: A Free Resource for Youth Workers, Schools and Organisations
Gendered Intelligence has released new guidance to support youth workers, community workers and staff in educational settings to run residentials that are inclusive of young trans people.
Based on 10 years’ experience of running residentials for young trans people, we want to share the key knowledge and advice developed by our youth workers over a decade.
The guidance covers a wide range of areas from changing facilities and sleeping arrangements, to outdoor activities, offsite visits, residentials abroad and how to support young people once the residential has come to an end.
This guidance is aimed at youth workers, community workers and staff in educational settings who are likely to be running residential trips.
However, it may also be a valuable resource for staff working on residential sites, parents/carers of young trans people and anyone else who is considering how to run or support a trans-inclusive residential.
