Tony Phillips – North Midlands Area Manager
I joined Nexus Fostering in August 2010 as a supervising social worker and opened our current office in Telford 2012. I became the area manager for the Midlands North area in September 2016.
I qualified as a social worker in 2003 and prior to joining Nexus Fostering I worked for one other IFA and as a residential social worker.
In my current role I oversee the Telford office and support the social work team, but my main duties involve recruiting foster carers, presenting training, and supporting our Foster Carers.
I have worked with children for many years and love the work I do. I enjoy building trusting relationships with children, supporting, and offering guidance. I find my role with Nexus Fostering, rewarding and feel privileged in helping a child progress and to see their joy and happiness when they accomplish or achieve something for the first time, my goal is to inspire children and to see them reach their full potential.
