how we’re helping

akt helps LGBTQ+ young people find safety and security. We do this by providing pathways into safe housing, access to social support and assist with routes into training and employment.
akt are addressing an issue often missed by many other homeless charities ... the safety of LGBTQ+ youth in their own homes.

Alex contacted akt as they were living in a hostile environment with abusive family members who were unsupportive of their gender identity. They felt trapped and desperately needed a supportive environment where they’d be able to continue their education.
you guys helped me so much so if sharing my story can show how incredible you guys are I'd be honoured to do so!
Alex, akt service user
We assigned Alex an akt caseworker who helped them move into supportive housing, where they’re safe to pursue their future aspirations.
