Spotlight on: support

19 June 2018

“Support is absolutely essential to reach your full capacity as a foster carer.”

“I feel fortunate to have G who has settled with me and my family so well, but when there have been problems, perhaps with G’s impulsiveness or with contact issues (G has Global Developmental Delay), my supervising social worker at Nexus Fostering has always been there to support and advise me.

“I feel that I’ve developed a good relationship with my Supervising Social Worker, as has G. Nexus Fostering Gloucester is a small, friendly unit, where everyone knows who you are and your situation. The team welcomes you with a smile and good humour. The meetings are always warm and there is usually much laughter and support.

“I’ve gained a great deal from the diverse training sessions they offer and would strongly recommend belonging to such an agency, especially if you are new to fostering as they have the capacity to offer consistent support or training.

“I know that I will always be able to pick up the phone to talk with a friendly person at Nexus Fostering if I encounter a problem or would like advice. All-in-all, I would thoroughly recommend Nexus for their consistent, high-quality support for carers.”

If you have always wanted to be a foster carer, Nexus could be the agency to support you in your dream. Why not find your local team, or call us on 0800 389 0143.
