This charity works so incredibly hard at helping young  LBGT community, such a break breaking story was told to us,by a young chap whom had been helped by the AKT, now in a positive outcome,  the story ended well. But so many young people,  are thrown out of their homes,  by something they can’t control,  their sexuality.

The charity receives no help from the government,  self funding, with the help of people such as, ambassador and Gay rights activist
Phillip Baldwin,
A well dressed and incredibly articulate young man himself.
He spoke at the breakfast,  on his work with the Albert Kennedy Trust, and his work outside.  I have meet Phillip several times now on the fashion scene, and see him as a friend,  whom is doing great things for the LBGT community,  i have interviewed him twice, and his passion for the course shines through.

In a year,  the trust receives over  1500 calls for support across three cities, which includes London, Newcastle,  and its original set up town of Manchester.

Key fact.
Purple door is now in its 2nd year, and has provided over 3,100 bednights already

77% of young people believe their sexual orientation /gender identity is a causal factor in rejection from home
So Incredibly sad, Something none of us can Control, Being the Reason so many young Become Homeless.
Some having no choice but to leave due to, abuse, physical and verbal. Violence is never the answer
A est 15-20 thousand young people are homeless, such shocking numbers
24% of youth homeless are in the LBGT section.
