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.

“There is no limit to what people can achieve and everyone has the right to a positive future. People come to the Foyer to access the support they need to continue with their lives the way they want them to be, discovering their strengths, following their dreams and knowing how to get there. By addressing the root causes of poverty and inequality, we enable individuals to fulfil their potential - and strengthen their communities.”
