Transfer fostering

Thinking of transferring fostering agency?

We've been providing continuity to our foster parents and the children we care for across England and Scotland for almost 25 years. Learn about the many reasons to transfer to Fosterplus below...

What’s different about Fosterplus? Well, we think it’s all about continuity and stability – something that’s important to children and young people who have often experienced a lot of upheaval in their short lives. Stability matters to foster parents too – in terms of training and reliable support from an established and experienced team. This commitment to continuity is what sets us apart – together with our expertise in matching.

By finding the best possible matches between foster parents and children, we increase their sense of connection and lay the groundwork for successful and stable placements. We also make sure that our social workers have realistic caseloads and so they're able to visit you regularly, providing the continuity of support that makes a difference to everyone.

Combined with highly competitive incentives and a careful, considerate culture, we offer a more rewarding all-round fostering experience.

Once you’re ready, we’ll take you through the whole process, fast-tracking your assessment – usually within 3 months. After that, you’re ready to start a new and exciting chapter in your fostering career.
