getting support during the festive period

We have put together a list of resources and support services available to LGBTQ+ young people during the festive period.


At akt, we know that this time of year can be hard for LGBTQ+ young people – especially for those who don’t have a family support network to rely on.

akt’s hours are different over the festive period, and lots of other support services are closed, or have shortened hours over Christmas and New Year. 

We want to make sure that you are able to access support if you need it, so we have put together a full national spreadsheet with housing and homelessness support services for anyone who might be struggling during this season.

You can filter this resource by services offered, opening hours and location to find the support best tailored to your needs.
