ProfessionalsTraining, Education, Outreach and Resources for your organisation
In addition to providing services for young people, SAYiT offers support and services to a wide range of professionals across Sheffield, South Yorkshire and nationally. Our core values are about effectively engaging with young people and listening to them; our training and offer to professionals is grounded in the direct work we do with young people.
We also have a resource for Sheffield Schools to support Transgender students. This Trans Support Pack helps with issues such as recording a students preferred name, providing gender neutral toilets, supporting parents, carers and siblings at the school as well as lesson plans for teachers to help introduce the topic.

We run several projects and groups that help young people with real day-to-day issues and give the opportunity to meet other LGBT+ young people in a safe environment. Young people refer themselves to the project or are referred by teachers, youth workers, family members, social workers, the police, GPs and other professionals. Please to make a referral and get all the relative details of the venue and the dates and times of our weekly meetings.
All young people attend Welcome Talks before joining the group and are offered 1:1 support if needed, before being introduced to the group.
