About Us

Charity Background

Sheena Amos was a local Sheffield NHS manager, a warm and visionary woman whose concern for young people’s sexual health and emotional wellbeing led to one of the first Youth Clinics in the country being set up in Sheffield in 1991.

Sheena died of breast cancer in 1994 and the Sheena Amos Youth Trust (SAYiT) was set up in her memory.

The Youth Clinic is still providing sexual health care to young people under the age of 20 – you can find further information on their website.

Who We Are

The Sheena Amos Youth Trust (SAYiT) is a registered independent charity (no. 1076951) which has been running in Sheffield since 1999. We are a sexual health charity working with young people up to the age of 25, particularly those who are most vulnerable or marginalised.

What We Do

We provide support and social opportunities for young people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) or who are affected by HIV. We also run a peer education volunteering programme which is open to all young people. Our peer education volunteers run training and awareness sessions challenging prejudice and stigma around LGBT issues, which is available to all organisations working with young people in Sheffield.

Have a look at our projects page for more information, or get in touch with us if you’d like to get involved, make a referral or request an outreach/training session.

Trustees

The Trust is governed by a team of skilled and dedicated Trustees. The role of Trustee is unpaid and we are happy to receive new Trustees throughout the year. Trustees are given initial training and ask to give 8 hours a month to the Charity.
