We provide safe and secure homes for young people aged between 16 and 25 years old.
Our Foyers have supported 154 young people. 52 gained an education qualification including 9 who moved on to university, 18 went into employment and 5 went on to volunteering opportunities.
In the past year, our specialist leaving care service in Trafford, Forest Court, supported 2 residents to move into their own tenancies. 5 residents gained employment, 4 secured places in education/training and 8 young people in the last year have been assisted to develop their independent skills.
We have two Foyers based in Blackburn and Hulme in Manchester. They offer a home and support to young people for up to two years.
This is a unique opportunity for young people who are committed to training or education but require the extra support a Foyer can offer.
