Moving can be as easy as 1, 2, 3

Step 1

Once you have contacted us and decided you’d like to move, the first official step involves letting your current agency know that you’d like to resign and move elsewhere. This step is not something you should worry about. Carers have every right to change agencies if they wish, and it’s often the right move if you think you’ll be better suited at a different agency.

Step 2

This step is only necessary for foster carers who currently have a child placed with them. Here a meeting is arranged with with you, your current agency, the child’s social worker, and our agency to coordinate and confirm that the agency transfer can go ahead without overly disrupting your current placement. The wellbeing of your foster child is the priority.

 “It was really stressful with our last agency as we felt unsupported and that they did not listen. They did not invest in us as foster carers , so it was a breath of fresh air moving to Fostering UK.”
