We have been fostering since June 2018, and we started our journey with Nexus Fostering.
A friend recommended Nexus and they had a very good Ofsted rating
I have worked for GP surgery, hospital clerical jobs, support worker, Head of Security for a crowd management company. Nottinghamshire Police support officer, and clerical at an inner city secondary school. My partner was in the Army and is a Prison Officer and retained Fire fighter.
These jobs have given us many transferrable skills. communication, diversity, restorative justice, role play. Working with and diverse range of people in the multicultural society. We also know about data protection. Safeguarding which are essential in fostering.
We get to show love and care to children who otherwise may never experience it. The children hopefully will feel safe and secure and have the chance to develop in a safe environment. Maybe we can even bring a little normality to their lives.
Seeing the change in 'L' she was so shut down when she came and now she will cuddle and laugh!
'A' taking her first steps and 'L' really laughing for the first time!
Challenging, motivating and rewarding
They have always been there when we need them, that’s the most important thing you can do!
Our son has embraced it. He has grown up massively. Even his teachers have commented. Our extended family have all treated our foster kids as part of the family.
It will completely change your life. It will take over your life. It will be heart breaking. It will be a rollercoaster in ways you won't expect. And it’s the best thing I have ever done.
