Whether you foster with an independent fostering agency or your local authority, you still have the option to move to another independent fostering agency, and we are here, ready to talk to you.
If you’re considering transferring fostering agencies but don’t know where to start – don’t worry. As a foster carer, you have the right to freedom of movement between fostering agencies. During the process of transferring, your views alongside those of the child in your care (if applicable) will be taken into full consideration. At Sure Start Fostering we follow The official Transfer of Foster Carers Protocol.
We offer a highly personalised support package, professional training and development opportunities. We also arrange specialist training for more complex behaviours, serious disabilities, parent and child and other specialist placements.
In addition to this, we also offer the following to our carers:
- Support 24 hours a day 365 days a year (including out of hours)
- Regular support groups
- Seasonal activities for children
- Celebrations of special occasions/festivals
- Budding or Mentoring with Experienced foster carers
The assessment period for transfers is usually shorter than for new applicants. There are some training exemptions, and we can access information and references shared by your previous fostering service. We aim to make your transfer smooth and simple, especially if you have children placed with you.
