If you have a worry, question, concern, challenge, interest, or even an opportunity you want to make the most of, our trained akt mentors are here for you.

akt mentors can work with you to set and achieve goals that are important to you - these do not have to relate directly to your gender or sexuality. Everyone is different, but some topics might include:

  • Housing and homelessness
  • Connecting with local services and groups
  • Developing skills
  • Understanding your identity
  • Coming out to friends and family
  • Dealing with bullying and abuse
  • Succeeding at work
  • Improving your health and emotional wellbeing

This was a big thing for me as it gave me somebody to talk to about all of the things that were going on in my life and I felt as though I could talk to somebody who wouldn’t judge me or my experiences.


If you’re based in or near Manchester or Newcastle, we can connect you to a Mentor who you can meet on a regular basis for one-to-one support.
