No, we are a grassroots organisation made up of people of a variety of backgrounds. We are not affiliated with anyone and are united in our concerns around child welfare and safeguarding.
We are concerned that schools are being advised to use policies regarding gender identity that are based on misleading or inaccurate information. We fear that many of these policies have not been subject to proper impact assessment and may cause conflict between protected characteristics under the Equality Act 2010.
We are also deeply troubled that these policies often contradict safeguarding legislation and good practice. For example, some lobby groups advise that a child’s trans status must be subject to absolute confidentiality — including not informing parents. This directly contradicts basic information-sharing safeguarding principles.
We also fiercely object to training offered to schools by lobby groups which asserts that certain personality traits, characteristics, interests or hobbies are typical of girls whilst others are typical of boys. This is sexism. Such training dictates that children who conform to these gender stereotypes are to be labelled ‘cis’, whilst children who do not conform are labelled ‘trans’ and should ‘transition’ in order to meet societal expectations.
Anyone can use our services or ask for our advice and we will help the best way we can. Our ultimate aim is to support parents/carers and educational professionals in challenging and questioning practices they feel are not adhering to safeguarding principles.
