Once you've finished your jigsaw, we'll send you a paid postage stamp to send it on to one of our partnering organisations in need. This is our circular economy. You can read about what that is here

For being such a great human being, you will receive a discount on your next jigsaw when you have sent your jigsaw puzzle on.

If you are an organisation who would like to get in touch about our initiative, or a customer who is ready to join our circular economy, please contact us at hannah@piecesofthepuzzle.co.uk.

 *Please note that this is only available to puzzles purchased in the UK.

AKT
 

akt supports lgbtq+ young people aged 16-25 in the uk who are facing or experiencing homelessness or living in a hostile environment.

They support young people into safe homes and employment, education or training, in a welcoming and open environment that celebrates lgbtq+ identities.

Coming out, or being outed as LGBTQ+, can lead to young people being made homeless. 24% of homeless young people identify as LGBTQ+.
Once homeless, LGBTQ+ young people are more likely to face violence and discrimination than young people who aren’t LGBTQ+. They’re also more likely to develop substance misuse issues and experience sexual exploitation. This can all take a huge toll on someone’s physical and mental health.
77% of the LGBTQ+ young people akt work with believe coming out at home was the main factor in causing their homelessness and so it's vital that they are supported in an environment that is inclusive and celebrates their identities in order to improve their life outcomes.
Founded in 1989, akt was set up in Manchester by ally Cath Hall, a foster carer who found that many gay, lesbian and bisexual young people were not receiving the care and support they need and deserve. 

The Proud Trust

The Proud Trust is a life saving and life enhancing organisation that helps LGBT+ young people empower themselves, to make a positive change for themselves, and their communities. We do this through youth groups, coordinating national and regional LGBT+ youth work networks, managing the LGBT+ Centre for Manchester, delivering of training, running events and campaigns, undertaking research and creating resources.
