Once you have come out, you may wish to start the process of updating your details on official records. In this part of the website, we’ve created guides for most major areas where you might need to update your details, including your passport, bank, and birth certificate. All of these steps are completely optional and you should not feel any pressure to complete  them if they aren’t relevant to you, or if you simply don’t want to. Please bear in mind that these rules apply in England and the process will be different if you live elsewhere.

If you would like any additional support with this, please speak with your care navigator.
