Introduction to about us
The Foyer was launched in 1995 with a clear charitable mission and a vision to provide
- a safe place to stay for young people who were homeless or at risk of homelessness
- enable people to move towards and into work
- improve access to health services and promote healthy lifestyles
- and to be enterprising; develop and operate businesses to support our work.
25 years on we remain aligned to that founding vision but in recent years we have also sought to broaden our reach, to move ‘up stream’, to work with younger people to prevent crisis in later years and also work with older people, particularly in moving into employment and in supporting recovery.
At the heart of the Foyer we believe that enabling people who can to move towards and into work actively supports a positive contribution to their own well being and the well being of their families and communities.
