A lot of foster carers transfer to us and we are very used to helping you do this. We hear again and again from foster carers who want to transfer because;
- they do not have enough support
- their agency has lost its ‘family feel’
- they do not feel valued anymore
- there has been a change of staff or ownership.
Whatever the reason for wanting to leave your current agency, you are self-employed and are entitled to transfer to whichever agency you want to as long as the local authority agrees. Any young people you have living with you are not at risk of being moved just because you change agency. Don’t be worried about how your current agency might react. We will support you through the process. It is your right to transfer if you are not happy.
