Are you a foster carer living in Essex or Suffolk and want to transfer fostering agency to us? We can show you how.
If you are already fostering, you have every right to consider alternatives if you wish to change fostering agency. You should not feel pressured by your current agency to remain with them.
We understand that this is a big decision and should you decide to transfer to our fostering agency, we will guide you through the process to ensure it is as smooth as possible for everyone involved.
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 thinking of changing 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.
We have a Transfer Specialist who would be happy to have a confidential conversation with you.
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)
A foster carer who has transferred to us:
'S' transferred to our agency just over a year ago. Read why she made that change and how she found the process:
"8 months ago I changed agencies. I did this for the child I was caring for so that they would get all the professional help they required. This isn’t always available through some agencies, Mosaic Foster Care has their own therapists. No more waiting for NHS help to become available!
The transition from my previous foster agency to Mosaic Foster Care was very straight forward and very quick. I was warmly welcomed into a group of carers and professionals.
I have no regrets about transferring and only have praise for what I have seen in my time here.”
