About AKT supports LGBT young people (aged 16-25) who are homeless or living in a hostile environment. Many of our young people have been rejected by their parents or bullied at school just for being brave enough to be themselves.
Mission AKT’s Mission is:
To ensure that all lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans young people are able to live in accepting, supportive and caring homes, by providing a range of services to meet the individual needs of those who would otherwise be homeless or living in a hostile environment.
We aim to do this by: •Providing appropriate homes through supported lodgings, fostering and other specialist housing schemes. •Enabling young people to manage independent living successfully. •Improving attitudes within society towards lesbian, gay and bisexual young people.
