Transfer to Fostering People

As a foster carer, you go above and beyond for the children in your care. So you deserve to feel valued and supported in your role.

As an approved foster carer you’ll have a wealth of skills and experience that we would welcome. People transfer to Fostering People because we’re renowned for our excellent support, which is probably why 94% of our carers would recommend us to a friend.

Transferring is simple

Choosing to transfer is a big decision but it can be easier than you think. We’ll work closely with other agencies and local authorities to ensure that you, your family and any children in your care will be fully supported during the move.

The transfer process is slightly different depending on whether you have a child placed with you or not and it’s important to remember that you can only be approved by one agency at a time.

If you’re thinking about making the move, it’s a good idea to speak to one of our friendly team. We can provide you with open, honest advice about the transfer process and give you all the information you need to make an informed choice.

You can also read some of the helpful insights below from our own foster carers that have made the transition as they share how they find Fostering People compared to their previous fostering providers.
