Often a young person arrives at one of the Foyer's 6 supported accommodation sites with very little – sometimes just the clothes they’re standing up in, perhaps a carrier bag with a few belongings. They’ve been through a difficult time and it’s often their first time living alone. This can be daunting and we aim to ensure they feel comfortable and safe - ready to have the best start at the Foyer.
We want to provide each new young person making a new start at the Foyer with a Welcome Pack.
The pack will contain food items, basic cleaning products and toiletries - things most of us take for granted, but a young person coming to the Foyer simply wouldn’t have the money to buy.
Would you consider making a donation so that we can help young people like:-
Sarah, 21 - who had to leave home due to family breakdown. She had to sleep on the sofa, her 2 younger sisters were in the only other bedroom. It came to the point she could no longer live there. She spent some time in a hostel but her anxiety increased and she spent a lot of time in her room. When Sarah came to the Foyer she was looking forward to having her own space and receiving help from a Skills Coach, as a result her relationship with her parents has begun to improve.
Daniel, 18 – became homeless after leaving a children's home. Daniel felt he had some skills but was concerned about moving into his own flat as he was used to being ‘looked after’. Daniel was worried how he would manage a flat on his own and be able to budget for everything he needed. Daniel has no family in the area to help him. His Foyer Skills Coach is helping him to learn the life skills he needs to live independently and reach his goals.
Please help us to support more young people like Daniel and Sarah, not just at Christmas, but the whole year round.
