become a foster carer!

Short Break Foster Carer - Nexus Fostering - Essex, Gloucestershire, Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire - Flexible working opportunity.


About us


Nexus Fostering is a well-established and highly regarded fostering agency that was set up in 2002 by qualified and experienced social workers. Nexus received Outstanding in all areas from the recent Ofsted inspection, for the third time in a row.


The role


We need carers willing to care for children, teenagers and sibling groups on a part-time basis away from their full-time placement. Many of us have busy lives and can’t make a full-time commitment to care for a child or young person who needs a family for a while. Part-time foster carers make a huge difference to young people’s lives.


What we are looking for


We are looking for energetic, resilient and patient individuals who are prepared to offer their homes to provide respite for children and young people.


What you’ll need to succeed


You’ll need a spare bedroom, be able to drive or have good transport links and have availability at weekends and school holidays.
