Registered housing provider and social regeneration charity East Thames supports about 600 young people living in foyers, making it the largest provider of this form of supported accommodation in the UK.
In partnership with the Foyer Federation, they have introduced the Federation’s Working Assets programme into a large foyer in Barking, Essex.
The aim of the programme is to improve young people’s employability outcomes by developing their skills, assets and talents for the world of work.
The Barking foyer programme is focused on work opportunities in engineering, in partnership with Ford’s Dagenham plant.
