together we can be there for lgbtq+ young people who need us.

The pandemic has presented akt with some serious challenges.

to meet the rocketing demand, we needed to act. and fast.  

We recruited more urgently-needed caseworkers to support our services team. This includes our first ever national caseworker. We’ve improved our virtual tools to support LGBTQ+ young people facing homelessness in any part of the country. In addition to casework, we’re creating online wellbeing spaces for young people. We’re ensuring that young people who simultaneously experience other forms of hardship have added support, including our young people of colour and the trans young people we work with.  

our young people have faced a lot of difficulties since March last year, as have we, and we know there’s more to come. 

We know that the coming months are going to be tough for vulnerable young people. We’re preparing for another spike of referrals. Job losses, unsafe homes and really limited options are all having an impact on the number of young people who need us. That likely won’t change any time soon. That’s why we’re calling on you to support us. Because together, we can continue to be there for young people who need us.
