Ellie Lowther - Essential Learning Curve Ltd

Raising awareness of trans rights, increasing diversity in community organisations, and promoting the global trans movement online.

Why did you decide to become a Community Champion? 

I decided to become a Champion because it gives me the opportunity to share feedback (via those I work with), which is great, as I believe it's important that my local Healthwatch has representation from the LGBT community. 

I'm also very passionate about healthcare issues for all - but specifically in regards to those seeking help around issues of gender dysphoria and transitioning.

How does your role help people in South Tees? 

I have achieved much in the way of furthering understanding of trans and gender variance in our communities. I deliver highly respected workshops and training around the UK via my social purpose company Essential Learning Curve Ltd.

I also founded the first trans specific charity in the North of England, named  'Trans Aware', and created the first trans-specific safe house project in the UK. I was also a finalist in the 2019 National Diversity Awards in the Positive Role Model category.
