Sharon's story

“I’ve gained communication and teamwork skills, plus experience in dealing with suppliers and other external contacts.”"

When I was 16 my adoptive mum told me we were moving to Spain. When we were over there I’d come home from school crying because I couldn’t speak Spanish, so I fell behind in lessons and found it hard to make friends. Eventually I spoke to my sister in the UK about how unhappy I was, so she came over to Spain and brought me back. I stayed with her for a while, but needed something more permanent, so I contacted Connexions who put me in touch with Barking Foyer.

Milka's story

“My goal is to bring the issues of young people from the developing world to the attention of policy and decision makers.”"

I ended up alone in London with no home. At my lowest point when I thought I’d have to return to Austria having not accomplished what I’d set out to do, I was put in touch with Connexions who referred me to Focus E15 Foyer.

Ian's story

“One of the reasons I’ve been able to stay out of trouble and out of prison has been MyNav – an online informal learning platform.”"

I’m 25 years old and up until seven months ago, I was in and out of prison from the age of 16. I came to live in Scarborough Foyer after I was released from prison and told that the Foyer could offer me support if I wanted to stop offending.
