At Nexus Fostering we believe Black Lives Matter
BLM is a movement founded in 2013 whose mission is to eradicate white supremacy and challenge violence inflicted on black communities who believe in an inclusive and informative movement.
At Nexus Fostering, we want all our children and young people, our families and our staff to work together to ensure children have a safe and happy childhood. However, we know that children and families from black, Asian and minority backgrounds face greater challenges in their childhoods and life chances. Nexus Fostering stands with black lives matter in their commitment to peacefully address and challenge inequities, unfairness and discrimination in all its subtle, indirect and direct forms.
We commit to challenging negative behaviour and stereotypes and encourage positive role models and portrayals of individuals and families from black and other racial minority groups. We aim to make a positive difference to the lives of black and racial minority children, families, foster carers and social workers. And we will continue to listen, learn and support the voices of our black and racial minority friends, families and colleagues.
Here at Nexus Fostering, we want to be proactive in the fight against racism. We are committed to having open and honest conversations with our colleagues, foster carers and our young people. In order to manage these conversations, we have organised a group of Nexus colleagues who are dedicated to become BLM ambassadors.
It is important that colleagues, carers and young people have people to speak with in regards to Racism. Details of how to contact the ambassadors, and to find further information about BLM are on the reverse.
