3 EASY ways of
donating to the AKT


The Purple Door Project

Purple Door London is designed to take LGBT young people out of danger and off the streets. They stay in the safe house for up to three months whilst specialist workers provide a bespoke intervention which covers longer-term accommodation, support, mentoring, and advocacy. With six bedrooms, plus shared space and facilities, the house will work with 30+ young people per year, providing a safe, positive space for them to regain their self-esteem and autonomy.

The Purple Door Project has been funded exclusively through individual donations and corporate sponsorship – with no public money involved.


If you would like to be part of helping AKT build and extend the reach of our services to more LGBT young people facing homelessness.


Referrals to AKT’s services and the new Purple Door housing projects can be made by contacting us directly.
