Are you already a foster carer who is living in Essex or Suffolk and are thinking about transferring to a different fostering agency like us? We can show you how.
As you may already know, if you are already fostering, you have the right to consider alternatives if you wish to change fostering agency. You should not feel pressured by your current agency to stay with them.
We understand that this is a big decision and should you decide to transfer our fostering agency, we will guide you through the process to ensure it is as smooth as possible for everyone involved via our www.i-want-to-foster.com website.
If there is a child in placement with you, they are the first consideration. The move would be well managed and follow all current guidelines.
If there are no foster children currently in placement, the process is more straightforward.
Why transfer to another fostering agency?
We are often contacted by foster carers who are considering moving foster agency for a variety of reasons: they may have concerns with their current agency or perhaps feel that Mosaic Foster Care can provide a more appropriate support service that they expect and that the child needs.
Even if you are only in the early stages of considering a move, please contact us and we will be happy to answer your questions and discuss any concerns, either on the phone or in person.
The fostering agency transfer protocol
We follow the “transfer protocol” developed by The Fostering Network and will ensure the transition is smooth for you, and the child you foster. (More: Transfer of Foster Carers Protocol)
