The Foyer Oxford project was developed by a consortium of three organisations – Anglicare WA, Foundation Housing Limited, and the Central Institute of Technology. Each member focuses on their area of expertise in housing, support and education.
Anglicare WA provides community support services to more than 38,000 Western Australians in difficulty each year. Its 400 staff and 300 volunteers offer a wide range of state-wide services including counselling, crisis and financial support, housing and homelessness support, and op shops. Anglicare WA has more than 20 years’ experience in supporting young people experiencing homelessness.
Anglicare WA provides the 24/7 services necessary to provide high quality, innovative support to young people. This includes case management, overnight and weekend support, project management and child support.
Housing provision and coordination
Foundation are one of WA’s largest developers and managers of affordable housing for people in need. They are an effective not for profit business managing over 2000 homes across the state, housing over 3500 people. In addition to accommodation, they provide a high level of service, to support their tenants to sustain their home. They do this because they understand that having a safe and secure home provides the foundation to look forward with hope.
Foundation Housing has developed the spectacular Foyer Oxford facility, which is now the recipient of a number of architectural and urban development awards. FHL is also responsible for the ongoing tenancy management for residents and maintenance of this world class facility.
The Central Institute of Technology is one of Australia’s largest vocational education and training colleges. With more than 30,000 students, the Institute spans six campuses including Oxford Street in Leederville. The Institute was WA’s first post-secondary education facility when it opened in May 1900.
The Central Institute of Technology provided Foyer Oxford with its location in vibrant Leederville and coordinates the award winning Jumpstart program – a flexible education provision catering specifically to the needs of Foyer Residents.
