A safe and fun space for LGBTQ+ and allies meet, train and socialise!

To Celebrate Pride Month King's Sport & Wellness will be hosting a series of free events for the King's Community.

King's Sport & Wellness is also hosting a raffle in support of akt a charity who provide safe homes for LGBTQ+ Young people. The raffle will be open to all in the university, and while the suggested donation is £5, participants can donate any amount and make multiple donations for additional entries.

How it works

Each time someone scans the QR code or clicks the donation link and makes a donation, this will count as one entry in the raffle. To gain additional entries, you must make separate donations. 

Donate here.


Prizes include a Garmin watch, four FitBit watches, and a personalised group exercise or spin class for you and 5 friends. King's Sport & Wellness will donate £2 from every day pass sold in June to akt.

King's Sport & Wellness are proud to partner with akt

akt has been providing routes to safe housing, support and secure futures for LGBTQ+ young people since 1989. We are a UK-wide charity with centres in Manchester, London, Newcastle, Bristol, and we also provide vital housing support online via our digital services team.

To this day, 24% of young homeless people aged 16-25 identify as being LGBTQ+, emphasising the crucial need for our services.

We exist to give LGBTQ+ young people at risk of, or experiencing homelessness or a hostile living environment the support they need to thrive. Coming out or being outed as LGBTQ+ can still lead to young people being made homeless. This is the reality for 77% of the young people akt supports.

If you, or someone you know, is 16-25, LGBTQ+, and needs housing or homelessness support, they can contact us at, you can also head to our website to find out more about our mission and how you can help!
