History

SAYiT is a registered charity (no: 1177477) which has a long history of working with young people in Sheffield.

In 1999, we were set up as the Sheena Amos Youth Trust in recognition of a local NHS manager who worked tirelessly to provide sexual health care to those under 20.

Sheena died of breast cancer five years earlier, but her legacy lives on through SAYiT’s efforts to carry her vision forward.

Today, we provide support and social opportunities for young people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or affected by HIV.

SAYiT works with young people aged from 12 to 25, including those who are most vulnerable or marginalised. Our range of groups provide expert practical advice, emotional support and social opportunities for those who need them – no questions asked.

A Message From Our CEO

Since being appointed as CEO of SAYiT over two years ago, I have been delighted to see the charity grow both in terms of the services it offers and the influence it has been able to demonstrate. And there is still so much more for us to do!

I am hugely proud and privileged to be a part of an organisation that places young LGBT+ people at the heart of all we do; where staff and trustees share values, have a common vision and are dedicated to improving the lives of LGBT+ young people.
