We provide a full range of fostering placements to our foster carers from short term care to long term care to more specialist services such as parent and child fostering. Each young person we are asked to find foster carers for are unique and have individual needs so we match carefully with our foster carers to ensure long term stability for the foster child. We do not believe in just placing a young person with a foster carer just because they have a vacant bedroom. For us, fostering is not a numbers game, it is about placing the right young person with the right family.
We offer extensive training throughout the assessment process, then ongoing and comprehensive training once our foster carers are approved.
We hold regular social events for all of the family and also work with birth children who have an important role to play in the life of a foster child.
Support for foster carers is vitally important so we invest heavily in this area to ensure that you have the tools you need to succeed in your role. Most importantly, you will never be on your own when you foster for Nexus.
