transfer to us
We are happy to receive applications from foster carers who wish to transfer from an existing agency. As with all careers we recognise that sometimes a change or different challenge is needed.
We realise that your foremost concern will be the stability of any child or young person in your care and that is why our first consideration will always be not to disrupt the child’s placement whilst continuing the positive work you have achieved so far.
In most cases following a protocol meeting with the Placing Authority an agreement can be reached for the child to transfer to us with you. We always promise a commitment to maintaining the current terms of the placement to you and the Placing Authority meaning you will continue to receive at least the same level of payment. In such cases the terms of placement for both yourself and the Local Authority will be honoured for its duration.
If you do not currently have a child or young person in placement the process is significantly simpler but we will continue to work to the same criteria in terms of completing a full and robust fostering assessment.
*Please be assured that any information you share with us will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
