Foster carers decide to change fostering agencies for a variety of reasons. Foster carers who have transferred their approval with our help have told us:
- That they had not been properly supported
- Their fostering allowances and pay were not enough
- Not enough training or respite care was available
Some foster carers told us that they had to wait a long time for their fostering agency to offer a placement.
As a foster carer, you are free to choose the fostering agency you foster for and we are here to help. Our qualified social workers are experienced in working with carers who would like to transfer to another agency to improve their number of foster children, allowances, support and amount of paid respite.
