Fostering in Buckinghamshire

Our Nexus Fostering team is always looking for foster carers in Buckinghamshire. Fostering is not only a highly fulfilling experience for you and the children in your care but it also benefits society as a whole. You have the power to make a difference to a child’s life and provide them with a loving, nurturing and proactive environment in which they can grow.

Could you be a foster carer in Buckinghamshire?

We try to match children with foster carers that reflect similar backgrounds when possible in order to ensure a smooth transition into their new home. This could be based on their cultural needs or simply that they are used to having a large family with lots going on or they need a quieter, more reflective environment.

  • A spare bedroom 
  • Tolerance, determination, optimism, resilience and a good sense of humour 
  • Enthusiasm, commitment & stability 
  • Prepared to foster from a wide age range
