Trans Ageing and Care (TrAC) Project

Dr Paul Willis (School for Policy Studies, University of Bristol), Dr Michele Raithby & Dr Christine Dobbs (Centre for Innovative Ageing, Swansea University).

About the research: Stonewall estimates that around 1% of the population identify as trans, including people identifying as non-binary, though there are no accurate estimates of the number of trans people in the UK. The recent UK survey of over 108,000 LGBT+ respondents commissioned by the UK Government (2018) indicates that trans respondents (13% of the sample) report lower life-satisfaction scores than the general population. Very little is known about trans people’s health and social care needs in later life and not much attention has been given to issues associated with trans ageing. The objective of this two-year study was to better understand what the health and social care needs are of trans adults (50+ years of age) and to examine whether current health and social care services providers and professionals are meeting those needs in Wales.
