LGBTQ+ Homeless charity boosted by Maximus Foundation UK grant donation

17 Feb LGBTQ+ Homeless charity boosted by Maximus Foundation UK grant donation

Maximus Foundation UK has awarded a grant of £2,500 to Albert Kennedy Trust to fund emergency support packages for young people.

The charity supports young people in the UK who are LGBTQ+ and are homeless or living in a hostile environment, providing emergency accommodation, crisis support and mentoring services.

The donation forms a part of the Foundation’s latest round of dedicated fundraising to help local charities nationwide. The grant was awarded via a virtual cheque presentation by a Maximus Foundation trustee. In 2021, Maximus Foundation UK awarded grant beneficiaries totalling £95,000.

Di Briggs, Chair, Maximus Foundation UK said:

“The economic and social impacts of the pandemic continue to be felt in communities across the UK. So we’re delighted to be able to help Albert Kennedy Trust to continue their amazing work supporting vulnerable young people to take their next step in life”.

Charlotte Vale, Fundraising Manager at Albert Kennedy Trust, said,

“Over the past two years AKT has seen a significant increase in the number of young people needing our support. Maximus Foundation’s generous grant will help us provide a basis for LGBTQ+ young people to start their new life – ensuring their immediate safety and helping us support these young people throughout their journey”.
