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.

Boyd's story

“It’s been a big confidence boost to be part of the project and have my ideas listened to and valued.”"

Soon after I was diagnosed with depression I decided to leave home as I saw the effect my mental health was having on my family. For a couple of weeks I slept rough and then spent some time sofa surfing at friends’ houses. I applied to live at Launceston Foyer after a friend of mine who was a past resident recommended it to me. It was the best decision I could have made. In the Foyer I’ve received counselling to help tackle my mental health issues, and the staff here have been great at picking me up on my bad days and being there when I need to talk.

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.
