If you’re looking for a new role where you can make a real difference in the lives of others that’s rewarding for you too – think about fostering.
Every year thousands of new foster families are needed to care for the increasing number of vulnerable children coming into care in the UK.
Here at Nexus, we support children and young people in your area that are unable to live in their family homes. Our commitment to helping these children in our communities is at the heart of everything we do. By providing a safe and loving home environment you can change lives. The lives of children and young people in your area, and your own life too by embarking on a new and incredibly rewarding role.
Join our Nexus family of carers and you’ll be given full training and round-the-clock support from our social work team, plus a competitive weekly allowance and additional benefits. You’ll also benefit from regular support groups and activities including family outings and events. And we’re accredited by Ofsted for being the most diverse foster agency in the North West!
Not only are the children and young people in safe hands, you are too.
We get asked this all the time! There’s no such thing as a typical foster carer. We work with individuals, couples, and families of all ages from all different backgrounds. Some are homeowners, some might rent, and some carers have other jobs too. If there’s a spare room in your home and you have plenty of time to support your new family member(s) then get in touch.
If you can fill out our enquiry form we'll send you an information pack and give you a call. Alternatively, you can book a call with our friendly fostering advisors at a time that suits you by using the "book your call back" button.
