Centre for Family Research


Take part in a new study of trans and/or non-binary parent families!

The Centre for Family Research is excited to launch their new study of trans and/or non-binary parent families. The study will focus on families with (at least) one trans and/or non-binary parent (who has identified as such since before their child was born) and a child aged 0-10 years.

The aim of this study is to increase understanding about the experiences of trans and/or non-binary parents, as there is very little research that looks at family life within this group. It is hoped that the research will inform policy makers worldwide and increase public awareness about diversity in family life

Who can take part?

The research team are looking for parents who have identified as trans and/or non-binary since before having (including adopting) their child, with a child aged 0-10 years. Taking part in the study involves being interviewed, filling in questionnaires and a parent-child play activity. Children aged 4-10 are also invited to take part in some activities if they wish. Participation is confidential and does not require all within a family to take part. As a thank you, families will receive a gift voucher. The study has received ethical approval from the University of Cambridge.
