3 EASY ways of
donating to the AKT


If you decide to volunteer with us we will invite you to attend an interview on one of our recruitment days so we can find out more about you, your skills and experience and give you the opportunity to find out more about our work and the roles you are interested in.

If you are successful you will be offered training to equip you for your chosen role. We try to ensure that all volunteers are recruited, trained and deployed on the basis of ability, potential and personal skills to carry out their role.

Training is provided to ensure that volunteers have the skills and knowledge appropriate for their specific role and service area. Some volunteers may be asked to attend additional skills training depending on their role.

The subjects below will be covered in all volunteer core training:

  • The history and ethos of The Albert Kennedy Trust.
  • Information on national and regional services AKT offers.
  • Basic LGBT youth homelessness awareness.
  • Diversity and equal opportunities.
  • Administration (eg, expenses).
  • Health and safety.
  • Confidentiality, communication skills and boundaries
