You can be there for LGBTQ+ young people who can't go home this winter. Support akt and help keep young people Out of the Cold. 

Many homeless LGBTQ+ young people have experienced rejection and escaped violence. For some this will be their first winter spent alone. Whether you’re able to volunteer, buy an exclusive £10 illustration from LGBTQ+ artists who’ve designed prints just for us, host a festive fundraiser, or donate a gift, you’ll be helping ensure no young person has to choose between a safe home and being who they are this winter.

Any amount you give will help LGBTQ+ young people facing or experiencing homelessness. These gifts are real examples of some of the items and services we provide:

  • £10 could cover breakfast, and a hot and nutritious lunch and dinner for a young person
  • £25 can cover a night of emergency accommodation, including food and travel vouchers
  • £50 could buy a Winter Pack for a young person, including thick coat, waterproof boots, and hat and scarf
  • £120 is the cost for a week with one of our host families
  • £750 can cover a month of safety in emergency accommodation, including food and travel vouchers
