Abstract

This year, on 20th November 2015, Transgender Day of Remember (TDoR) received more recognition than ever before. This reflects the increasing visibility of trans people in social life, but social exclusion and rates of discrimination for trans people remain high. The purpose of this briefing note is to highlight findings from a study which explored trans1 people's experiences of domestic violence and abuse (DVA), their social care needs and whether they accessed support through social care or supported housing provision. A brief overview of the project is presented in order to contextualise the distinctiveness and importance of the study's findings. These findings uncover the barriers to service provision as well the identification of some enablers. I end with some recommendations for practice.
