what is nexus 360?
At Nexus Fostering we believe all children and young people deserve a chance to live in a family setting. To provide this opportunity, we have developed and enhanced and specialist service named ‘nexus 360’ which is often referred to as ‘step-down’. It offers an increased level of input and support for our Foster Carers, whilst offering an alternative to residential care for young people.
Nexus 360 is our most comprehensive type of placement offering the most support to our Foster Carers. It is a therapeutically led fostering service overseen by a qualified psychologist, offering a highly intensive support package to Foster Carers, to enable us to provide an outstanding service that gives challenging young people an alternative to residential care.
