Are you currently a foster carer looking to change agency?
At Fostering UK we understand that fostering is a different journey for everyone, which is why it’s so important that you’re happy with the what your agency has to offer. If you think that your current agency might not be right for you – don’t worry, we’re here to help.
Working with us might be be just what you need
At Fostering UK we take things back to basics, making sure the needs of you and your foster child are the absolute priority. With years of experience in agency transfers, our team understands how carers can become dissatisfied with their current agency, and how beneficial it can be to transfer to one which might be a better fit.
We focus on what you need, and ensure that close contact is kept between all members of our agency so that the very best support and advice is available around the clock.
If you’re ready for a change, we make the process of moving and joining Fostering UK really simple. It’s quick and straightforward, and will be a great choice for you and your fostering career.
I currently have a child placed with me
If you currently have a child placed with you, don’t worry – the transfer procedure is well equipped to deal with this situation.
The process involves contacting your current agency, explaining your desire to move and arranging a meeting with our agency, your current agency and the child’s social worker to ensure the move can go ahead without disrupting the placement.

I do not have a child placed with me at present
If you don’t currently have a child placed with you, then the process is even simpler. Once you inform your current agency of your desire to move, you will need to be re-assessed by Fostering UK, followed by an official resignation to your previous agency.
All of our transfer processes work in accordance with The Transfer of Foster Carers Protocol and are designed to be straightforward for all parties involved.
