Foyer Oxford in buzzing inner-Perth Leederville provides accommodation for young people aged between 16 and 23 years in 98 studio-style apartments, including 24 for young parents. Communal living and support service areas are supervised by trained staff 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Key services include life skills development, mental and physical health support, drug and alcohol support, mentoring and employment assistance.

The foyers are based on a successful model that originated in the UK, resulting in more than 75% of people who leave the program becoming engaged in employment or further education, or both.
