Global Guardians are extremely proud to be working alongside the Albert Kennedy Trust (AKT) with one of the projects they are working on for the homeless. These individuals are working young people between the ages of 16-25, who have fled from their usual family home because of the negative reactions they have faced when their sexuality becomes known. The Global Guardians team help to assist AKT by using some of the large properties which we manage. This allows the trust to nominate individuals through to Global Guardians Management, in which we can offer them somewhere safe and homely to live. The Albert Kennedy Trust supports all lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans 16-25 year olds to ensure that 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. They 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, bisexual and trans young people
