Youth foyers

Youth foyers in Queensland give young people aged 16 to 25 years access to stable housing in a supported living environment.

The internationally recognised youth foyer model is designed to help young tenants develop the life skills they need to transition into mainstream accommodation, while pursuing their education and employment goals.  

There are youth foyers in several cities in Australia and around the world. 

Under the Queensland Housing Strategy 2017–2027, the Queensland Government is delivering better access to safe and secure housing for young people by:

  • building new youth foyers in Townsville and on the Gold Coast
  • expanding the existing Logan Youth Foyer.
