AKTakt (formerly The Albert Kennedy Trust) supports LGBTQ+ young people aged 16-25 in the UK who are facing or experiencing homelessness or living in a hostile environment. We help young people stay safe in a crisis, find emergency accommodation, access specialist support and develop skills and achieve life goals. Founded in 1989, we now have offices in Bristol, London, Manchester and Newcastle, and support LGBTQ+ young people across the whole of the UK.
Support provided by akt includes: access to advice from our housing specialists; one-to-one support through our digital mentoring programme; access to an emergency support pack or tenancy starter pack; accommodation with an akt host; a place to stay in akt’s Purple Door safe house; a safe place to stay with one of our many housing providers; and access to life skills training, events and peer support networks.
