Why transfer to FosterCare UK

Whether you’re looking to transfer fostering agencies from an independent agency, or from a local authority, learn why transferring to FosterCare UK is the best choice for your fostering career.

Transferring fostering agencies

Often, in the fostering world, there may come a time where you wish to transfer fostering agencies. This could be due to your agency or local authority not being able to provide you with the support or training you deserve. Knowing when the right time is to transfer agencies is important to your journey of becoming the best foster carer you can be. There are significant differences between a local authority and an independent fostering agency – so it’s important to understand the differences to learn which is the best choice for you.

Here at FosterCare UK, we are an independent fostering agency with a family-feel – but have the wealth and experience of a larger company. We’ve got the capacity to maintain a local, small-agency atmosphere, while our network expands across the country. Working hard to recruit and train competent staff, we are able to provide the level of care necessary to offer full support to foster carers. Learn some of the benefits of transferring to our independent fostering agency now:

Benefits of transferring to FosterCare UK

  • Community – we’re pride ourselves on our family-feel agency. By transferring fostering agencies to FosterCare UK, you will immediately become part of our family. We provide opportunities to meet other like-minded cares, share stories together about the world of fostering and receive support.
  • Experience – we have over a decade’s experience in recruiting, training and supporting foster carers. Our experience allows us to concentrate on our primary focus – providing the best foster homes possible for children and young people.
  • Support – the support provided in an independent fostering agency is usually much better than what you’d likely receive from a local authority. FosterCare UK provide 24-hour a day care, 7 days a week – meaning that one of our friendly team will always be on hand to support your fostering needs.
  • Training – again, the level of training is a lot more extensive in an independent agency than a local authority, as we typically have more resource with our staff to provide this training.
