Zuleika - a foster care leaver's story


For 13 years, Zuleika's fostering family have shown her what having a family feels like. She talks about how she felt when she first arrived at her new home, why she has enjoyed being part of a fostering family, the challenges she has faced and who inspires her.  

They've stuck with me through it all, and I'm very grateful for that. I appreciate them for letting me have a family

Nexus Fostering offers foster carers round-the-clock support 365 days a year, a comprehensive programme of training, and a competitive allowance and benefits in recognition of the support you provide to the child(ren) in your care.
