Exeter Foyer, Exeter
Exeter Foyer is set in the heart of Exeter offering an integrated solution to housing, personal development and training needs for young people.
Our vision is to provide a dynamic, inspiring service that will encourage young people to thrive on their journey to independence; to be a place where young people can access workshops, specialist support, training, access to education and employment opportunities, and more importantly, staff that can enable young people to gain confidence, resilience and self-determination.
Set in the heart of Exeter offers an integrated solution to housing, personal development and training needs for young people. The foyer provides safe and supportive accommodation for young people aged 16-25 years old.
The service offers a strength based approach, tailored specifically to each individual focusing on their own strengths and interests using a coaching approach to work alongside resident to achieve success in their own identified areas of development. Specialist coaches provide advice and guidance to help the young people with work, training and educational needs as well as developing the necessary skill for independent living. This work helps gain independence and enables young people to become economically active members of the community.
A majority of applications come via the local councils, Youth Enquiry service or referring professionals. Exeter Foyer are also open to self-referral for young people who fit our current criteria.
