  • Engage with the support planning process and meet the terms of the licence agreement, including being supported to access education, training or employment

Please note that Brighton and Hove Foyer is not suitable accommodation for children under 16, and so we cannot accept referrals for people who have childcare responsibilities where the child would live with them. We are also unable to accept applications for young people who require a high level of supervision due to drug or alcohol misuse.
