Robert Syms, MP for Poole, recently visited the Quay Foyer to talk with workers there and gain fresh insight into the vital work they do for young people in Poole. The work helps young people aged 16-25 to live independent and productive lives in the community by offering accommodation, coaching, and support to guide them on their way.
About Quay Foyer
The Quay Foyer is a project for young people in Poole, run by the Stonewater group.
The project provides accommodation, personal development and support facilities and activities, and training and employment opportunities for young people aged 16-25.
The aim of the project is to help young people live independently and build emotional strength, to promote self-awareness, and to develop the skills required to enhance their potential and achieve their aspirations.
The young people in the project set its course. As a condition of their stay they agree to engage in a programme of supportive activities, which are flexible and varied, with many paths and directions to explore.
The foyer project is constantly changing to develop support that caters for unique individual needs.
The foyer facility includes 45 rooms, 1 emergency room, and 2 flats for young parents.
