Who we are?
Nexus Fostering is an established Independent Fostering organisation, operating across England. We provide different services including mainstream fostering for children aged 0-18, Parent and Child placements, and we also have a Specialist Fostering Service providing more intensive therapeutic foster placements to children and young people.
The Support Worker supports the young person’s progress in the Nexus 360 foster placement. Nexus 360 is a specialist service designed to meet the needs of young people who have experienced neglect, trauma and rejection. The child or young person’s behaviour may be difficult, presenting both challenges and rewards. It is a therapeutically led model overseen by a qualified psychologist. It offers a more intensive support package to our foster carers that includes a support worker for the child or young person.
The support worker will be working with the child or young person in the community, in leisure activities or at school. Specifically, they provide one to one support to children and young people, and provide some necessary respite for the carers. This post is for a competent worker to engage in direct, focussed work with children – to build positive relationships with the child, to model acceptable behaviour and help the child to trust and feel safe with adults. All applicants must have a valid UK driving licence and access to a vehicle.
