Valeria's story

“Living in my own place was strange at first, but I’ve started to enjoy it now and I know that anytime I have problems or questions I can still turn to the Foyer for help.”"

I moved from Colombia to be with my mum in the UK. She had never taken sole care of me before and found it difficult to suddenly have a teenage daughter to look after. As a result, our relationship became strained and teachers at my school started to notice that I was having problems at home.

Sarah's story

“Currently I’m studying for my Chartered Accountant Qualification, and I have an unconditional offer to study Accountancy at University College London.”"

When I fled a forced marriage, I was disowned by my family. With no one to turn to I approached my local council. They told me about Foyers and explained that they help young people with work, education and training needs. Education has always been important to me so the idea that I’d be encouraged to study appealed to me.

Marcella's story

“Their support helped me to realise my true potential and I feel as though I’m living my dream.”"

A place at Ilford Foyer was a godsend, the support staff were amazing – they encouraged me to stay at university and made me see that I shouldn’t allow my dyslexia to hold me back. When I decided to start my business, I had help at every stage.
