Housing for young people
Our housing teams across Aberdeen City and Aberdeenshire deliver face to face contact with tenants while adhering to social distancing in line with current government guidelines.
Foyer Housing Service
There are many reasons why a young person may need a safe home along with individualised support to make changes from what may have been a chaotic, possibly troubled life towards a positive and productive future.
We listen and respond to the hopes and aspirations of young people as they make the universal transition from adolescence to adulthood.
We are here to meet the needs of people as they move towards social and economic independence. For young people referred to our housing support services this will involve learning, with support, to gain skills to be able to manage their own home and work towards becoming employed. Young people will develop an action plan which will help them to improve their understanding of themselves, where they are now and how to work towards where they want to be.
