about us

a fostering family like no other

welcome to the
three counties team!

We are based in Ampthill supporting Foster Carers in the Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and surrounding areas. Our team consists of dedicated, passionate experts who want to make a positive difference in the lives of children and young people in our region.

We are a helpful, welcoming and supportive team who carry out our work with a smile.  We find time for each other and importantly for our Foster Carers, who have an outstanding support network across the region. We are always pleased to spend time helping you understand the fostering task and if it is right for you and your family. We hold support groups and offer regular supervisions to our Foster Carers, resulting in us being Outstanding in all areas in our latest Ofsted report.

always on hand

Carers receive regular visits, phone calls and emails with a dedicated Supervising Social Worker within the Three Counties team, offering 24/7 support, 365 days a year, meaning we are always here for you. Our team has experienced Foster Carers who are happy to act as mentors to new carers and offer help, advice and support when joining Nexus Fostering.

Our comprehensive training builds upon and develops your skills in understanding the vulnerabilities and needs of the children we support. We also recognise the importance of Foster Carer’s speaking with fellow peers so we facilitate monthly support groups, participation groups and activities for the whole family to enjoy.

We need resilient people who are keen to support children who come from complex backgrounds and have individual requirements.  We have a particular shortage of Foster Carers to support sibling groups, teenagers, parent and child placements and children with disabilities. So if you can rise to the challenge of caring for children who have experienced trauma please contact us.

There is a real opportunity for you to make a lasting difference to children and young people in your community and give them the life they need and deserve.

We hold regular face to face and telephone information events across the region and we encourage you to pop into our office weekdays between 9 - 5 for an informal chat. We are always happy for you to contact us, no matter which aspect of fostering you wish to discuss: 7 Doolittle Mill, Froghall Rd, Ampthill, Bedfordshire, MK45 2ND. 01525 571 103
