Thanks Mip

Yes, i only missed the essential links! Thsnks Vangender and Rowantrees.

Oh, and: the whistleblower's twitter, which includes screenshots from the exhibitionizm tumblr allegedly linked to Bradley.

Ran these two Bradley founded orgs through companies house - no sign of either.

As discussed in thread 2 JB has founded or been appointed a director of a number of orgs (notably Action for Trans Health and the NUS) under three different names, ‘Josh Bradley’ ‘Jess Bradley’ ‘Joshua Bradley’ (and three different DOBs)

Name changes make no sense in a timeline (ie, ‘Jess’ is not the most recent variant used.

Still no official records of JB founding TELI (although the claim still appears on the NUS website, despite them deleting the reference to ATH). All references to JB have been removed from the TELI website.

That's an informative title OP.

vagender Fri 03-Aug-18 14:38:52

Hm, the SSDPUK website seems to be down?

TimeLady Fri 03-Aug-18 14:39:49

I'm not sure Jess was a founder of TELI. Jess was a speaker at the inaugural conference

www.teli.org.uk/annual-conference/

I think it's just that there are a couple of typos on the NUS bio re. Jess. Sloppy.

OrchidInTheSun Fri 03-Aug-18 14:41:37

Possibly wishful thinking on Bradley's part?

Action for Trans Health have an annual solidarity fund (applications for this year closed so form not available to view)
actionfortranshealth.org.uk/?s=solidarity+fund

"Action for Trans Health takes a broad view of healthcare, which recognises that there a wide number of things that can impact on an individual’s healthcare needs. As such, we place no restrictions on what the money can be used for. We do ask that if the money is being used to access medication which will be needed long-term, that the applicant has thought about how to secure the long-term supply after the grant money has been spent. Some things we have funded in the past include:

– appointments with private gender clinics;
– hair removal;
– counselling and therapy;
– rent payments when the money isn’t there because of a health issue;
– mobility aids;
– sick pay;
– part payment of surgery costs;
– wigs, binders, clothes, etc.

Once applications have been received, a member of Action for Trans Health’s administrative staff will anonymise the application text and pass them onto our funding panel who will allocate the funds"

Thanks OP. Good job.

Floisme Fri 03-Aug-18 14:48:12

I'm sure there was a screenshot on the first thread of Bradley in person claiming to be a co-founder of TELi.

BettyDuMonde Fri 03-Aug-18 14:52:22

Here’s JB claiming to have set up TELI in 2016 on JB’s official NUS officer profile page.

It used to read ‘I set up Action for Trans Health in 2014 and Trans Equality Legal Initiative in 2016’ but someone has clumsily deleted the ATH reference since the allegations were made public - perhaps they meant to delete TELI and did the wrong one? 🙊

Agastache Fri 03-Aug-18 14:53:23

Oopsie.

Cropped that screenshot down to make viewing easier:

article by SHANE BOOTHBY
Shane is the UK Editor of Ragged Media.

"Organizing for Trans Equality
The Trans Equality Legal Initiative links lawyers and activists in the fight against discrimination and inequality experienced by the trans community in the UK and abroad.

This week sees the launch and first annual conference of the Trans Equality Legal Initiative (TELI). The event, taking place in London, draws together human rights lawyers, trans third sector organizations, campaigners, journalists and academics for a day of discussion and knowledge sharing on key areas of the trans legal and activist landscape in the UK and more broadly.

Topics to be explored by panels both inside and outside the legal profession include health, justice, strategic litigation & impact of exclusionary provision, education and international protection... (continues)

"TELI’s founders themselves span a number of spheres, bringing wide experience:

Jess Bradley is the Director of Action for Trans Health, the UK’s largest campaign for democratic trans healthcare.

Michelle Brewer is a Barrister at Garden Court Chambers and advises members of the community on areas such as access to health, inclusion in education and challenging discriminatory practice.

Allan Briddock is a Consultant Barrister at Blake Morgan LLP and specializes in immigration and asylum with a particular interest in LGBTI issues.

David Bufton is an Associate at Linklaters LLP whose pro bono work for the firm sees him represent LGBTI asylum seekers to assist with their applications for asylum and provide legal counsel for Pride in London.

Tara Hewitt is a NHS Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Lead at the University Hospital of South Manchester and also works as a Diversity Consultant, supporting organizations across the UK.

Kate Hutchinson is Director of Training at Wipe Out Transphobia, where she provides training and support for a number of organizations including Barnardo’s, Welsh Women’s Aid and the NHS.

Cathy Jaquiss is a Pupil Barrister at 10KBW and intends to specialize in public law, drawing on human rights work in Togo, West Africa and experience of immigration law in the UK."

Michelle Brewer is scheduled to speak on the pro-trans motion at the Women’s Equality Party Conference this year.

We really need to have a go at one of those online trello board thingies. So many dots to connect...

BettyDuMonde Fri 03-Aug-18 15:14:11

I wonder if some of those TELI connections are the inspiration/motivation for JB’s trans prisoner freedom of information requests?

Is that Michelle 'trans women are women, there will be no debate' Brewer? That one?

From Garden Court Chambers website:

Michelle is one of the founding members of the Trans Equality Legal Initiative.  This is the first UK-wide initiative aimed at empowering trans people to access legal protection and to support the learning of legal and other professionals who wish to work with the trans community in an inclusive and informed way.

In the coming year, Michelle will be part of an expert team producing and publishing a legal analysis of the Women and Equalities Committees Transgender Equality Inquiry and the Government’s response to this.

So Michelle co-founded TELI alongside Jess Bradley, if Jess' claim to be a founder is true?

LangCleg Fri 03-Aug-18 15:21:18

Good thread title.

Procrastinator1 Fri 03-Aug-18 15:22:16

And is said to be a government advisor.

Oh look, this is from the WEP thread, courtesy of the fabulous Rowan

TELI’s founders themselves span a number of spheres, bringing wide experience:

Jess Bradley is the Director of Action for Trans Health, the UK’s largest campaign for democratic trans healthcare.

Michelle Brewer is a Barrister at Garden Court Chambers and advises members of the community on areas such as access to health, inclusion in education and challenging discriminatory practice.

Seems it is the same Michelle Brewer, guest speaker at the WEP conference on the GRA.
