Become a Foster Carer

Nicola Crisp

Director of Operations/Registered Manager

Hi, I’m Nici Crisp and I’m the Registered Manager and one of two Director of Operations for the agency. I work within the senior management team and my role is to ensure the safe running of the daily operations of the agency. I am the senior manager responsible for safeguarding, complaints and allegations, regulatory compliance, placements and the therapeutic service.  I also supervise the Area Managers in the East of the region (Swanwick, Basingstoke, West and East Sussex and Kent). I work with some amazing individuals and we are all committed to providing the best outcomes for our children and young people and we want them to live in homes that are aspirational, safe and loving with our fantastic, highly skilled foster carers.

I joined Blue Sky in 2013 to develop the newly formed therapeutic service in the agency, having worked for several years before joining in a therapeutic fostering service for a national children’s charity. My work passions are crisis intervention, risk management, action planning and ensuring we continue to learn and develop within the agency. I love having the opportunity to still meet up with carers and young people and to hear about the amazing progress everyone is making. During my time in Blue Sky, I’ve worked in most of the social work roles including practising as Supervising Social Worker, Family Consultant, Area Manager and TLC Director. Outside of work, I am a proud nanny to 5 gorgeous grandchildren!
