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 at one of our collection days, 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 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
