The Beaumont Trust is a charitable educational resource, originally founded in 1971, for medical, voluntary and lay people looking to learn more about Gender Dysphoria, “Trans,” Transgender issues and related matters. Our Trust Deed has been revised twice. We now work according to the rules of our current 1987 Deed
We are a small registered charity, doing what we can to properly inform others.
The Beaumont Trust’s objectives are as follows:
- To assist Medical and other support organisations working in the delivery of care to those affected by Gender Dysphoria by providing thoughtful leadership, research, and information.
- To educate and inform the general public and professional organisations about Transgender issues, care, support, equality, and integration.
To relieve the emotional stress caused by transgenderism ( transsexualism), or by cross-dressing (transvestism) to those affected, their families and friends.
We provide information to those affected by the issues concerning the trans spectrum. The Trust’s vision is to create an educated and informed society where all gender diversity is valued, respected and celebrated in a safe and rewarding environment for all gender variant people. By building on research into gender identity, its development, and representation, we create training programmes, educational literature and good practice guidelines which improve the lives of those within the trans spectrum of people.
We are all volunteers, this is not a membership organisation.
We do now have additional Friends of Beaumont Trust “FOBT” who are not trustees, but are trusted additional volunteers trying to help in our work as speakers etc.
Please note, we specifically address the needs of adults (over eighteen).
