Training and Events

SAYiT have developed four core training programmes, aimed at all businesses and service providers who want to ensure their environment is LGBTQ+ inclusive. Our aim is to assist everyone in how to become familiar with LGBTQ+ language and terminology, be more confident in understanding how LGBTQ+ people experience the world, and how to identify further support.

Our training is interactive, and provides space to ask questions. Training can be delivered online or in person. All training materials are provided by SAYiT.

All sessions are 1/2 a day and suitable for up to 20 attendees.

  • LGBTQ+ Awareness
  • LGBTQ+ History
  • LGBTQ+ Sexual Health
