At the moment we are supporting many young people and adults living in isolation. These are young people who have been at risk of or have been homeless, plus adults facing a raft of difficult life challenges from mental ill health to poverty. Most are vulnerable. All need our help.
We continue to deliver vital support whilst doing everything we can to keep our front line staff and people who use our services safe.
We are determined to be there, to listen, to help and support all the young people and adults we currently work with and those who, due to COVID-19, are at higher risk and now need our help. This is getting more challenging.
We are desperately concerned that the COVID-19 crisis will prevent our services from running and leave people unsupported, without food or worse.
Please donate whatever you can to help us to continue delivering life changing support.
Thank you so much!
How to make a difference
Being able to stay connected is vital. The people we support desperately need access to smartphones/tablets, data and wifi to help reduce loneliness, allow them to continue with learning and supporting their mental and physical health while staying at home.

Aberdeen Foyer has partnered with Aberdeen Cyrenians, Social Bite and CFINE to work in collaboration to distribute food to people who are experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness. As this crisis deepens, it becomes harder for our young people who need to self isolate and stay at home, to do so on very limited budgets. Working together we will do our best to ensure young people have access to nutritious food during these challenging times.
