Western Isles Foyer was initially established in 2003 in response to an identified need for support to assist young people with tenancy management and sustainment. The project initially provided a supported accommodation service. We continue to provide this service but expanded our support remit in 2011 to provide a drop-in service, deliver independent living skills training and provide support and training to assist young people to move into/onto education, training or employment.
We support service users via our current range of service provision with the overall objective of assisting young people to move on to successfully sustaining their own tenancies and live independent and fulfilled lives and participate as active members of their local community.
The organisation is managed by a committee comprised of directors, special directors (including service-user representation) and organisational representatives.
