Trans Guides – name change and gender recognition certificates

Published: 08 August 2023
Last updated: 10 January 2024


There is no legal process that you have to follow to change your name. You can simply start using a new name, but you do need evidence of your change of name to update your official records.

The first issue of our Trans Guide will take you through all the processes and pathways to legally changing your name and gender identity.
