We are delighted and proud to announce that Grace Wyatt, director of Nexus Fostering, has been elected/appointed to Chair of the Nationwide Association of Fostering Providers.
NAFP is the only UK trade association that campaigns solely for independent and voluntary sector fostering providers (IFPs). Every year, IFPs care for more children, their foster carers make a special contribution to the lives of children, and NAFP understands their unique role. The mission of the NAFP is: ‘To be the voice of the independent and voluntary fostering sector for children and young people, and to promote high standards of professional and business practice within the membership.’
Membership stands at 73 organisations, representing over 80% of children placed in the independent and voluntary sector across England, Scotland and Wales. Membership is open to all registered independent fostering providers, which is strongly encouraged because by working together, NAFP will be a stronger campaigner for the benefits of independent sector provision.
