Support for LGBT+ communities

LGBTQ+ young people are four times more likely to become homeless than their non-LGBTQ+ peers. Homelessness charity Llamau runs the Youth Homeless helpline to support provide information on where young people can access safe temporary accommodation and offer advice and support.
