Published on: 2014-10-28 10:06:00

Nexus Fostering had its’ second review of the Investor in People (IIP) award in January 2012 and is delighted to retain the award that it originally received in January 2006. IIP is a national standard of best practice with a focus on strategic planning, culture and communication, developing people, effective management and managing performance. Our re-award highlights our commitment to our staff, because we know that staff who feel valued can offer outstanding support to our valued foster carers, and, in turn, to the children and young people in their care.
