The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has produced, in the summer of 2019, a new TRANS EQUALITY STATEMENT, to replace the CPS Transgender Equality Management Guidance first produced in 2006, and last updated in 2014 with community input. The aim of this shorter document is simply to to provide a brief overview of key CPS commitments to Trans equality, as suggested by community stakeholders, who felt that the management Guidance document had served its purpose and needed replacing by something shorter and which would set out our key commitments and linked to relevant policy, guidance and research.

Please follow this link to the Trans Equality Statement: https://www.cps.gov.uk/sites/default/files/documents/publications/Trans-equality-statement-July-2019.pdf

The CPS would welcome feedback on the new document. Please send your detailed responses to our Chief Executive Dr Lewis Turner, email lewist@lancslgbt.org.uk.
