Banning Conversion Therapy: 2022 Government Consultation Response for England and Wales
This open consultation ran from 9:30am on 29 October 2021 to 11:45pm on 4 February 2022.
BASW and SWU do not support any form of ‘conversion therapy’ or practice. We believe it endangers the health and lives of LGBTQIA+ people. BASW and SWU acknowledge that this consultation is not about a question of whether the UK Government will ban conversion therapy, but rather ‘how’ conversion therapy should be banned in legislation.
This open consultation response was produced for England and Wales only, however, we shall continue to share our response with the respective administrations.
