On 25 November 2022 we announced that Susie Green had left Mermaids. Following this, various media outlets reported that Susie has resigned from the organisation due to issues in relation to her leadership of the organisation.
This was not correct and this false speculation has been upsetting to Susie, who has been involved with Mermaids for many years. We regret that we did not address this speculation at the time and are sorry for any negative impact this reporting has had on Susie and her family.
Throughout her time with the organisation Susie has shown hard work, passion and commitment in an increasingly hostile environment and as CEO grew the charity from a completely volunteer-run organisation to be the largest trans support charity in the UK.
We would like to again thank Susie for her years of dedication and the support and hope she has given to countless children, young people and their families during her 22 years at Mermaids, in both a voluntary and employed capacity.
