Our Vision and Purpose

The Foyer works to reduce poverty and disadvantage, supporting young people and adults who face multiple barriers to build confidence, develop and nurture talent to make real and lasting changes in their lives.

We achieve this by:

  • Ensuring engagement in education
  • Developing sustainable employment skills
  • Supporting independent living, positive health and wellbeing


We wish to build on our work to date, to draw on past and current successes and seek to harness the talent, enthusiasm and commitment of all staff and volunteers across the organisation, combined with the support and leadership of our Board members.

“Investing in young people is not optional.  We cannot fail those who need accommodation with support, who need someone to listen to them, sometimes challenge them and respect them, who need to know there is hope and opportunity, who need to know that they too can succeed.”     Ken Milroy MBE, Chief Executive
