AKT has launched inter-AKT a brand new online support service, which will enable us to support young LGBT people experiencing homelessness.

inter-AKT is a safe and non-judgemental online space that connects young LGBT people with Digital Mentors and other digital resources to explore a wide range of issues, whether it’s through chat, messaging, video calls or audio; and can be accessed on most devices, including smart phones, tablets and laptops.

It’s our first digital service and first service available nationally. inter-AKT has been developed in response to consultation and direct work and input from young LGBT people.

inter-AKT is about harnessing opportunities presented by digital approaches.

Tom Johnson, AKT’s Digital Services & Innovations Manager said: “inter-AKT is about harnessing the opportunities presented by digital approaches. AKT is taking its first steps on a digital journey and looks forward to working with young people and a range of partners in the youth sector and beyond to deliver services with greater impact to a wider pool of young people.”

inter-AKT is currently funded by Comic Relief, UNUM and Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
