Impact work with a trans youth group

baal_bidsuccess.Maincontent.0001.ImageGal..208.Image.~etc~medialib~alssstaff~ecfm~popup2012~~~Par~~0017~~ImageIn May 2014, I was awarded funds from the British Association of Applied Linguistics ‘Applying Linguistics Fund’ to work with a community group for transgender young people in the north of England. This funding enabled the development of training resources intended for adults working with young people. The resources were designed and produced by the young people involved in this project, with the help of local youth and community workers, and included a web and published resources as well as creative audio-visual pieces. The resources were informed, in part, by my research with the group.
