The Albert Kennedy Trust

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.

To support our work all our staff, trustees, carers, mentors & volunteers are committed to:

  • Delivering flexible and responsive services centred on the needs of LGBT young people.
  • Engaging, supporting and nurturing LGBT young people.
  • Providing accessible, safe and positive environments that are respectful of difference and diversity.
  • Pioneering and innovative services to meet real need.
  • Good communication and participation throughout the organisation and valuing and encouraging the contributions of all those involved. Excellence and best practice.
  • Working in an open and honest manner, where trust is earned and given.
  • Working as a team.Challenging perception both internally and externally.

And doing the above with passion, energy and enthusiasm
