Foster carers – changing fostering agency
Every year several thousand foster carers give up fostering because of becoming disillusioned by the service they receive from their fostering agency. We know that if the initial anxiety about moving fostering agency was reduced more carers would continue to foster.
Fostering Transfer Agent represents the best interests of foster carers. We are not tied to any fostering agency, Government Department or local authority.
Fostering Agencies – Are they all the same?
As a foster carer, the support provided by your fostering agency should be about you being given the right resources and knowledge to be a skilful and confident carer who provides the best care for the children you look after and who enjoys being a foster carer. The best agencies are in regular contact with you, both by phone and visits to your home to discuss any concerns you might have and for you to be able to get extra support if necessary.
We aim to help foster carers to be treated fairly and valued for the professional service they provide to looked after children.
Fostering Transfer Agent is managed by social workers who have many years experience in fostering and the social care sector. We provide foster carers with free confidential advice and practical help to transfer to another fostering agency.
