Flax Foyer Homeless Awareness Week 5th-11th December 2022

During homeless awareness week we would like to raise awareness of the work we do in supporting young people experiencing homelessness.

Flax Foyer has 37 self-contained flats and provides 24/7 support to young people on a range of issues, to include: housing, training, education and employment, independent living skills and help to access benefits and health care. We also provide support by spending time and talking to the young people when they need it most. Sometimes it’s the little things that mean the most.

We have great organisations/projects that support us to include: Start360, NIYF, Bytes, Extern, Ashton Centre, Ardoyne Association, AYE, The Hype Team, YEHA, Lighthouse and The People’s Kitchen. These organisations/projects help us provide a holistic service to our young people, ultimately helping to improve their circumstances and life experiences.

At Christmas time we are reaching out for support to the local community, schools and charities to make sure our young people have enough basic essentials and hopefully a few treats too, it is Christmas after all. We know that times are hard for everyone, so we are very grateful for all those that have already committed their generosity and support.

We are also very pleased that we have passed our recent inspection from Supporting People, evidencing our dedication in improving standards for all the young people in need of our services.

If you know of a young person (18-25) in need of our service, please get in touch at info@flaxfoyer.com
