Why foster with us?

5. Transfer to us

Are you currently with a fostering agency and looking to transfer to us? The process is much easier than you may think and we are fully committed and focused on finding the right carer for the right child. We are proud of our excellent support and brilliant training and we believe that it could be a positive move for you.

We are responsible for finding homes for children who come into our care. We always try to place them with our own Foster Carers first as this means that our children are able to stay within their local community and will be close to their family, friends and school. By fostering with us, you will be helping us to do this.

While we can give no guarantees as it depends on approval ranges, few of our foster carers are waiting for placements very long, and we are able to give a great range of opportunities to Carers to foster younger children.

If you are thinking about transferring to us, the best thing is to contact us so that we can have a chat with you. Once you are happy for us to contact your agency, we will request your assessment documents from them, and where appropriate initiate a meeting, to plan the transfer. You will then be allocated one of our experienced social workers to guide you through the application process.
