nter-AKT is a safe and non-judgemental space that connects young LGBT people with Digital Mentors and other digital resources to explore a wide range of issues, whether it’s through chat, messaging, video calls or audio; and can be accessed on most devices, including smart phones, tablets and laptops.
inter-AKT enables AKT to support young LGBT people experiencing homelessness, and also provides AKT the opportunity to prevent homelessness, supporting young people address challenges early, before they find themselves in situations of crisis.
inter-AKT is The Albert Kennedy Trust’s first digital service and first service available nationally. inter-AKT has been developed in response to consultation and user-centred work with young people. inter-AKT is also a response to learning obtained from AKT’s research into the needs of young LGBT people in the UK and the ability of services across the country to respond to this.
Further online resources will become available when AKT relaunches its website in August.
Services interested in referring young people to the service or partnering with AKT in another way should contact Tom Johnson, Digital Services & Innovations Manager.
