Young people still need you amid COVID-19 crisis

We offer training and support to work from home and change lives

The COVID-19 outbreak has affected almost every aspect of our daily lives and whilst we are all in lockdown or self-isolation, there are still thousands of vulnerable young people coming into care, in need of a safe and nurturing home. 

We may have family and friends who are always there to support us in these difficult times but there are many young people in your area who are in need of a similar support system. The fear and uncertainty these young people normally feel are maximised in such grave situations. Having the emotional support of an adult to help them overcome these problems is vital for their development. 

With young people’s interest at heart, we’re continuing our dedicated work to look for appropriate foster carers. Whilst our physical offices are temporarily closed following government guidance, we want to reassure all potential foster carers that measures are in place to ensure that all phone calls, email and enquiries are answered and responded to. 

By fostering a young person, you will be able to work from home, with ongoing training and 24/7 support provided. And with your help, these vulnerable young people will be protected from exploitation and away from unsafe and dangerous environments.

We continue to prepare for every eventuality and continue to provide top-level training and support to existing and potential foster carers. If you are interested in fostering, you can contact our team at www.nexusfostering.com/enquiries, on 0800 389 0143 or send an email at foster@nexusfostering.co.uk. We aim to reply to all requests within 24 hours.
