We are a strong partner organisation reflecting this in our organisational values and behaviours. The Foyer was founded as a partnership between various public and voluntary sector interests who had a shared concern to tackle youth homelessness and unemployment.
We became a melting pot for ideas and innovation which remains a lasting trait. Forging effective partnerships pays dividends in meeting our central charitable purpose and ambition.
Our partners and funders include Aberdeen City Council, Aberdeenshire Council, North East Scotland College, Grampian and Langstane Housing Associations, NHS Grampian, Skills Development Scotland, Department of Work and Pensions/JobCentre Plus, as well as other social enterprises and charities including The Prince’s Trust, Barnardo’s, Alcohol and Drug Action, Home Start, Action for Children, Aberdeen Cyrenians, Turning Point Scotland.
Aberdeen Foyer is proud to be a member of End Youth Homelessness, a UK wide movement, bringing together local charities to tackle youth homelessness on a national scale. The Foyer represents the North East of Scotland and the partnership provides us with a national platform to raise awareness, share experience and generate vital voluntary income to support and enhance the services we provide to young people.
