How long have you been with Nexus Fostering?

18 years.

What do you think are the benefits of fostering, for you and for the young person?

Keeping a child safe and providing a loving home.

What were the main challenges in the placements you have had?

Dealing with the frustrations of the children and anxieties from their past.

What did you find most rewarding?

Seeing the child blossom and develop

What is your fondest memory from one of your placements?

A child I was looking after had to have constant physio, so seeing them walk on their own was wonderful.

How have Nexus Fostering supported you in your fostering journey, in particular with any challenges that came from your placements?

Nexus are always there 24/7. I have regular visits and they have helped me through any hard times.

If you could describe fostering in 3 words, what would they be?

Rewarding, exciting, challenging.

What is the main message you would like to get across to someone who is learning about fostering for the first time?

It can be challenging but so rewarding, giving love and safety to a child, but be prepared for anxiety and challenging behaviour.
