What is a Foyer and the Foyer approach?
Foyers are committed to building a bank of evidence to continually demonstrate how our work will help change the trajectory of youth homelessness, education and employment.
Our snapshot demonstrates key data about the young people who reside in Foyers, how they found Foyer, average age, stay and other key data.
Foyers In Australia
Foyers are integrated learning and accommodation settings for young people, typically aged 16 – 24 years, who are at risk of or experiencing homelessness.
Foyers provide a point in time service that enable young people in transition to develop and achieve educational and employment pathways, exiting in a sustainable way from welfare and service dependence. While there are programs in both the education and homelessness sectors that seek to support young people experiencing disadvantage with their education or accommodation across Australia, there are almost no fully integrated service models focused on education and employment outcomes.
