About the Charities
Opening Doors London (ODL) from Age UK, with Age UK Camden as the lead agency, and in partnership with Age UKs across London, is the biggest project providing information and support services to and with older lesbian, gay, bisexual and / or transgender (OLGBT) people in the UK.
The Albert Kennedy Trust works with 16-25 year old lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans young people who are homeless or live in a hostile environment.
Every day we deal with the effects homelessness can have on young people’s lives.
The numbers of young people contacting us increases year on year and it is important in increase our donations at the same rate. The Albert Kennedy Trust could not survive without the generosity of its supporters.
