A Hornchurch fostering agency has received an "outstanding" Ofsted report.
Nexus Fostering in Ripon House, Station Lane received its full report following the inspection in October.
The report looks at three areas of the agency’s work; overall experiences and progress of children and young people under its care, how well children and young people are helped and protected, and the effectiveness of leaders and managers.
Ofsted inspectors felt that “[Children and young people] have a sense of normalcy, hope and optimism in their lives. They enjoy unwavering support from their foster carers, who have become their family, and they have a place to call their home.”
“The agency is unquestionably child focused. Whether you are a manager or staff member, the child or young person is at the heart of your practice.”
Director Grace Wyatt said: “We are so proud of these comments. They reflect the hard work and commitment of all our staff and foster carers.”
