A foster care service has been rated “outstanding” for the third time by an independent regulator.

Nexus Fostering London in Harrow announced the Ofsted rating after an inspection found their service was “outstanding across the board” for the third time.

The full report will be published in November.

Nexus director Grace Wyatt said: “I had every confidence we could do this as I know the commitment the staff have to supporting our foster carers and young people.

“They put every ounce of their effort into ensuring better outcomes for young people and supporting our carers, and this rating reflects that.”

Foster carer Lucy, who writes a blog for Nexus Fostering’s website, said: “We chose Nexus Fostering from other agencies because of their outstanding Ofsted report, the relevant and regular training offered as standard and their exceptional support package.”

With a predicted 8,000 extra foster carers needed this year alone, Nexus Fostering are keen to speak to anyone who would like more information about fostering.
