Based on research in conducted in five Foyers across England; the focus was to find out from Foyer residents what they believe would contribute to helping them develop and maintain resilience in the face of adversity and to make recommendations so that Foyers can reference their practice against the evidence base from academic literature and the views and perceptions of residents.

The report includes a summary of recommendations which will help Foyers and the Foyer Federation reference their service provision and practice to the literature and young people’s assessments of important resilience-encouraging components.
