With Pride Month upon us, Nexus Fostering carers Kim Gray and Nicola Brown, are encouraging others to think about fostering. The couple who have been fostering for two and a half years discuss their journey:

“We have both wanted to foster for a long time, I [Kim] worked in education for 20 years and wanted to feel that I could really make a difference in a child’s life

“We have had our little fella for two and a half years and is now permanent. He is our only placement, although we have done a two-week respite for 4 siblings too.

Nexus Fostering have been brilliant. I don’t think they have treated us any different from any other couple, they are always helpful and professional

Foster Carers Kim and Nicola said that they would encourage those thinking about fostering to go for it.

“I would totally encourage them, it is a fantastic choice to make in life and there is no reason why you shouldn’t its hard work but so rewarding and that I know lots of same-sex couples that foster really successfully and have great relationships with the children they support.”
