The Foyer Federation creates programmes, campaigns and ideas for Foyers to implement, filling gaps in community services and inspiring policy and decision makers to make a more effective investment in young people.
Examples range from supported housing, training and employment projects, homeless prevention initiatives, transitional learning and health and well-being programmes, to a university support scheme and campaigns for welfare reform. Through our projects and initiatives we explore ways to involve young people in shaping the services they receive.
What we do
Our ground breaking projects and initiatives are led through our network of accredited Foyers and other partners. Each project is co-designed around investing in young people's talents and assets.
The Foyer Federation was set up to push for a new approach to working with young people. Our evidence based campaigns receive their mandate from our network, stakeholders and our mission; to transform services and opportunities for young people.
Our accreditation and quality assurance schemes encourage services to aspire to excellence and inspire confidence in their ability to deliver.
The Foyer Federation offers a range of one day training workshops, which will be held throughout our UK network and are linked to the themes of our Test Bed projects. These projects have been piloted and developed in a number of Foyers in order to improve services for young people.
