We're extremely worried to see the recent judgement on trans young people’s access to what can be life-saving healthcare.

Puberty blockers can play a crucial role in affirming a young person’s identity and avoiding the unnecessary pain of going through puberty in a body that conflicts with their identity.

The outcome of this decision does not reflect the overwhelmingly-positive outcomes gained via hormone blocker treatments.

We're particularly worried for the mental and physical wellbeing of trans young people who live in hostile environments with unaccepting parents who won't offer consent for medical support like puberty blockers. akt stands in solidarity with Mermaids who work tirelessly to support and advocate for the rights of trans people, and the Tavistock clinic as they continue to support the trans community and families of those affected.
