What is the service?

The Foyer for the Island in Ryde, Isle of Wight, offers 45 ensuite rooms in nine groups of flats with shared kitchens.  Other smaller units of accommodation in Ryde and Newport provide individual rooms with shared facilities and on- site staff and support.

Accommodation and support

The service provides safe and secure accommodation for young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness and gives individual support, advice and guidance.

Each young person who enters the service will have a named Support Worker who will create a personal development plan focused on the individual needs of that young person.

The service aims to support all young people to be healthy, happy and develop independent and thriving lives. This will be through participation in support sessions, workshops, training, education and employment.

This accommodation will be provided in partnership with Southern Housing Group and will offer young people a choice between the Foyer for the Island and a number of smaller units of accommodation.
