How I can help you
Here at the Albert Kennedy Trust in Newcastle we understand that being lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or trans can bring difficulties and can make life at home a real struggle. You may feel worried about coming out, or you could be exploring if you are LGBT. You may be worried that you will be kicked out, rejected and left to cope on your own. We’re here to support you, talk through your options and put you in touch with people who are there to help. This service is treated confidential and we won't tell your parents.
What to expect
1. Send us a message and we’ll get back in touch as soon as possible and definitely within two working days.
2. If you can tell us your name (you can use a nickname) and explain your situation we’ll reply and suggest a time to talk.
3. During this talk we’ll ask you some questions to understand more about how we can help and suggest a next step.
4. The next step might involve more online sessions, having a chat over the phone, inviting you to our office for a face-to-face appointment, connecting you with another mentor or referring you to another service that can help.
