Based on a French system, foyers offer hostel-type accommodation with jobsearch, training advice and social support to young people as they make the transition to living as independent adults. This evaluation looks at the setting up and operation of seven foyers. The report is aimed at agencies thinking of developing a foyer and policy makers and practitioners working in the areas of youth homelessness and unemployment. Research findings can be accessed through the Joseph Rowntree Foundation website at www.jrf.org.uk. An executive summary is also available to download from the Centre for Housing Policy website at www.york.ac.uk/inst/chp/foyersum.htm.
