Logan Youth Foyer Support Service

Logan Mural Wall (002).jpg
The Logan Youth Foyer Support Service (LYFSS) helps young people build a brighter future by providing accommodation and guidance in a supported environment.

LYFSS works with young people across 6 key service offers:

  1. Education and employment
  2. Health and wellbeing
  3. Social connections
  4. Civic participation
  5. Independent living skills 
  6. Housing.

Our holistic approach is based on a Sustainable Livelihoods Approach and Advantaged Thinking Framework. We work alongside young people to focus on their skills, assets and resources, whilst strengthening their talents. 

For young people who are Foyer ready, we offer 40 transitional semi-furnished studio or one bedroom units, with 24/7 on site staff. We work collaboratively and flexibly with young people and other services to increase sustainable community connections and supports.Logan .png
