About our Children's Services

Chat to us

Our Fosse Support Services division provides specialist complex care for children so they can live safer, healthier, and more fulfilled lives within their communities.

Our person-centred support promotes independence, inclusion and equal access to opportunities and services. Our amazing team of support workers offer friendship, safety, and the opportunity to live their lives the way they want to live it, working within a good parenting model.

Our team has a wealth of knowledge and experience including a:

  • Director of Children’s Services | Dave Hancox, who has over 25 years of experience of managing large children’s homes and SEND schools, focusing on children and young people with severe learning disabilities and associated challenging behaviours.  He has also been involved in developing training opportunities with Derby University, focusing on developing and professionalising the care sector.
  • Band 9 Clinical Director | Robert Bain, who has decades of experience in nursing and complex care including 6 years with the NHS and has diplomas and qualifications from top universities for Forensic Nursing, Applied Behaviour Analysis, Systemic Psychotherapy & Personality Disorder.
  • PBS (Positive Behavioural Support) Lead | Jamie Anderson, who has over 20 years of experience working in support services with an extensive training and education background including qualifications in health and social care and positive behavioural support.
  • Quality Assurance Manager | Matthew Spalding, who has a wealth of experience and qualifications in quality assurance and compliance to ensure we go above and beyond to ensure our children and young people’s safety and development.

All of which ensure we meet the highest possible standards across all our support disciplines.

As a company, we embrace and integrate six fundamental principles into all aspects of our operations, aiming to create a positive impact for our clients, their families, and our dedicated staff. These core values serve as guiding pillars, shaping our organisational culture, and fostering an environment of excellence.

These are:

Be kind | Be supportive | Have fun | Work together | Make it happen | Make lives better

We work closely with Local Authorities to ensure children and young people can be accommodated within their community and close to their family; we believe this is key for young people to thrive and flourish.  Our homes are carefully selected and adapted to ensure they are safe, homely and meet the needs of the individuals we care for.

"My son has been getting some awesome support and friendship from Fosse—it's been a game-changer! Since he joined up, he's been so much happier and more relaxed.
