Pride month is an important time at akt. As an LGBTQ+ charity, we raise a significant portion of our income and raise awareness of our work during this time of year, which is why our partnerships and Pride celebrations with our corporate supporters are so vital to us. Our annual summer appeal also provides individuals with a direct way to show their support of LGBTQ+ young people who are facing homelessness simply for being who they are.  If you are celebrating your identity this month, please remember that it is not safe for everyone to do so.  You can join our CommUNITY appeal and help to build a community for those who don't have one.  Please have a look at who is supporting us this year… and support us in your own way.  

In addition to the organisations listed on the partnership page we also have a number of smaller sellers wanting to show their support for LGBTQ+ young people. Such as CocoonHomewareCo who are selling some lovely stickers and cards and Dr Jamie Gallagher who back by popular demand is selling badges for akt.  You can also akt-ify your shopping by adding us to your M&S Sparks card (during Pride M&S will double their donation to akt) or use Amazon Smile and choose us as your charity.  

To the people who donate, click, buy, sell in aid of akt at this time of year thank you. You are all making a difference. Please have a look at our wonderful partners and what they are doing for us and if you can please get involved.
