What is a Foyer?

Banner Foyers provide a safe place for young people to live, learn and make the transition to independent adulthood. Foyers offer a something for something deal for young people between the ages of 16-25 who are in housing need with personal development and other services that enable young people to reconnect with learning, increase their employability, improve their health and wellbeing and develop their leadership potential.

Banner 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.
