Story

We are on a mission to end youth homelessness and prevent and alleviate the impact of poverty on young people and adults across northeast Scotland. Child poverty is increasing, and the long tail of the global pandemic continues to impact generating heightened social, political and economic uncertainty.

Aberdeen Foyer exists to create positive and lasting change working alongside people experiencing tough life challenges and the wider system to address and prevent the root causes of poverty and youth homelessness across local communities in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire.

Our vision is for people to thrive, feel connected and included in their community, where everyone has a safe, decent place to call home and access to resources to live a good life.

Our mission every day is to support people to discover their potential, overcome challenges, and build their own positive future.

We believe there is no limit to what people can achieve in their lives.

We serve and work alongside young people from age 12-25 and adults of all working ages (16-65) living in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire who are experiencing tough life situations that make it difficult to achieve a good life and a positive future. Decades of experience has taught us that every person’s journey is different, that people's problems are often complex and their skills and talents always unique.

We start where someone is at and get alongside them to understand and find solutions around any immediate challenges whilst getting to know people’s strengths, stories and aspirations. We support people to build confidence and self-awareness, ensuring access to opportunities and resources they might need to achieve their goals in life, find their purpose and feel valued. We understand the importance of community, of having a sense of belonging and solidarity with others as a way of developing self-esteem and have built this into our range of learning programmes and ways of working across our services.

We offer a holistic approach creating opportunity for people to have, and exercise, choice in their lives. Each of our services offers support to address significant challenges people might be facing and inspiration and resources to shape their own future. By wrapping around the people who use our services, we navigate and change the system with them, based on their needs and aspirations.

We believe change can only happen when people work together, which is why we value partnerships and collaborative working as part of the local community and with stakeholders locally and nationally.
