Aberdeen Foyer

In line with Government guidelines we have moved to a different way of working. Our priority is keeping our clients and our staff safe.  The majority of our staff are now working from home.

Some of our services cannot close, a skeleton team observing social distancing, are in place to support the young people at our supported accommodation sites in case of emergencies.

We have adapted how we deliver programmes and services utilising digital solutions, while meeting the changing needs of clients many of whom may also have to self-isolate.   

Although we have changed how we work, the purpose behind each of our services remains unchanged. We are liaising with partners to ensure we continue to support people to the best of our ability, while mitigating the impact of the COVID-19 epidemic which has already seen a rise in demand for our services. 

We are particularly aware people with whom we work will be anxious and we would like to assure our clients that our counselling service is OPEN and will continue to be available by phone and digital solutions, please contact counselling@aberdeenfoyer.com

If you're feeling worried, need information and would like to speak to someone at the Foyer about your programme, service or about counselling support, you can find a full list of our contact details here.
