What collaborations are we looking for?

There are three areas of research that the project focused on: healthcare, criminal justice, and under 18’s. This is a list of ideas of the types of projects we are looking to collaborate on. Projects can seek to improve existing outcomes, make changes to current systems, or pursue different kinds of systems altogether. These are some suggestions to start with, but this is not an exhaustive list:


Healthcare collaborations could be about:

    • Mandatory trans training for health care providers
