In exchange for services uniquely tailored to their needs,
young people who live in a foyer are expected to actively
engage in their own development and make a positive contribution
to their local community. The foyer offers young people a range
of opportunities to overcome barriers and to achieve their goals and aspirations.
There are 120 foyers across the UK, including three in Cumbria
– South Lakes Foyer in Kendal, Eden Rural Foyer in Penrith
and Whitehaven Foyer.
