YMCA Bedfordshire

The Foyer

The Foyer consists of 34 units comprising a mixture of shared clusters, bedsits and independent flats. Residents' ages ranging from 16 to 30 and there is always something going on, especially with the help of our Participation Coordinator who is based there.

Much like Cornerstone House, staff offer advice and guidance in order that residents have everything they need to move on into sustainable tenancies of their own. Many of the Foyer residents attend college or find part time work to help them gain skill and experience. If you would like to read about N and some of our other residents experiences please check out our case studies here

The Foyer is also home to the Crash Pad which offers emergency housing to local 16-17 year olds who find themselves living on the street. The Crash Pad works with local social services and Bedford Borough Council to offer this short term stop over whilst long term solutions can be arranged.  

£5 will provide toiletries for new residents
£10 will provide a Crash Pad user with emergency food and toiletries
£50 pays for a weekly staff and residents brunch club
