About the Albert Kennedy Trust
The Albert Kennedy Trust’s mission is to ensure that all LGBT 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.

The charity was formed by Cath Hall, an experienced foster carer in Manchester, who appalled by the death of 16-year-old Albert Kennedy. He fell from the top of a car park in Manchester whilst trying to escape a car-load of ‘queerbashers’. Albert was a runaway from a children's home in Salford and was depressed. His short tragic life had been filled with rejection and abuse.
