Morgan-Lea’s Foyer journey

When Morgan-Lea arrived at Bridge Foyer she embarked on a journey of personal change. Through her determination and support from staff she overcame challenges and made progress on her goals. 

“When I first arrived at the Foyer I was in a really dark place. With the help and support from all the staff, and reconnecting with my GP, I managed to get myself into a really good place.”

One of her proudest moments was starting a part-time job, ‘which has been a huge achievement.’ Morgan-Lea also became an ambassador in the Foyer, enabling her to champion the voices of other residents and inspiring them to get involved. Beyond the Foyer, Morgan-Lea actively engaged in the Youth Power Fund and in Talent Bonds panels, growing the positive impact within her community. Ella, who worked with Morgan-Lea closely, said:

“Morgan-Lea was a joy to work with! She was an integral part of several funding decision making panels as a Young Consultant, as well as engaging in our Power Pioneer's programme. She should be super proud of her achievements” - Ella, Programme and Learning Manager, The Foyer Federation

Her commitment to overcome challenges and make progress on her goals contributed to being ready to move-on into independent housing. However, Morgan-Lea faced some financial hurdles which led her to apply to our Moving On Up Fund. Morgan-Lea was successfully awarded £1000 to equip her flat with necessary items to make it a comfortable living space. In her own words:  

“I was able to use the Moving On Up Fund to get myself my flooring in my flat which helped me use the money I had been saving to go towards furniture as I was unable to get help from the government for my white goods. It really did take a massive weight off my shoulders and the money paid for the majority of rooms in my new place.”

Thanks to Morgan-Lea for sharing her inspiring story with us!

 “Morgan has been on quite a journey since arriving at the Foyer. We are all very proud of everything she has achieved.” Bridge Foyer
