Albert Kennedy Trust AKT - Safe homes and better futures for LGBTQ+ young people

AKT supports lgbtq+ young people aged 16-25 in the uk who are facing or experiencing homelessness or living in a hostile environment.

We support young people into safe homes and employment, education or training, in a welcoming and open environment that celebrates lgbtq+ identities.

AKT helps young people: 

  • Stay safe in a crisis 
  • Find emergency accommodation
  • Access specialist support 
  • Develop skills, identify and achieve life goals

We do this by providing:

  • Access to advice from one of our housing specialists
  • Connection to a mentor for one-to-one support 
  • Access to our emergency support pack or tenancy starter pack
  • Accommodation with a specially trained akt host
  • A place to stay in our Purple Door accommodation service 
  • A safe place with one of our many housing provider partners 
  • Access to life skills training, events and peer support networks
