With self-isolation and social distancing in place, the isolation of many young LGBTQ+ people who are at risk of homelessness had increased and many had found themselves forced to stay in a hostile environment longer than they would have done otherwise. This situation created more referrals for help, which The Albert Kennedy Trust predicted would continue for at least three months.
LandAid’s £5,000 grant provided a £1,000 grant for The Albert Kennedy Trust’s service areas in London, Newcastle, Manchester and Bristol, and a £2,000 grant for their London team who saw more of a demand. This included food, vouchers, essentials. mobile phone credit and emergency accommodation.
