We are the national LGBTQ+ youth homelessness charity; focused on prevention and early action we provide: safe homes, mentoring, training, advocacy and support to young people who are homeless or living in a hostile environment after coming out to their parents, care givers and peers.

We are looking to recruit some more fantastic volunteers to a variety of different roles to support our vital work supporting LGBTQ+ young people in Newcastle and the North East.

Come along to one of our volunteer information evenings to find out more!


Volunteer Information Evenings:

Outreach Champions and Mentors

Tuesday 13th November drop in any time between 6pm and 8pm at Revolucion de Cuba 1-3 Cloth Market NE1 1EE 

We have an exciting new volunteering opportunity here at AKT where we’re looking for volunteers to assist with our outreach work to reach more young people who may be in need of our support. This could include staffing an information stall at an event, delivering a presentation about our work at a school, college or university or using your own existing networks to spread the word. Come along to find out more about this great new opportunity. We will also be speaking about our mentor volunteer role in which a volunteer is matched to work 1-1 with an LGBTQ+ young person to work on specific issues they may be experiencing. See more on our website at www.akt.org.uk/mentor. Refreshments will be provided on the evening.


Tuesday 4th December drop in any time between 6pm and 7.30pm at Room 2, Good Space, Floor 2, Commercial Union House, 39 Pilgrim Street, NE1 6QE   

Are you passionate about supporting LGBTQ+ homeless young people? Do you have a spare room and are based in the North East? Our host programme is one of the ways which we can offer support to a young person who has no safe place to live. Come along to find out how you could become a host for AKT! 

Please note hosts must be 25+. Refreshments will be provided on the evening.
