Transfer To Us

Are you an approved and experienced foster parent living in Essex or Suffolk and looking to transfer to Mosaic Foster Care?

Find out more about the support on offer at Mosaic Foster Care, and get in touch with our team to discuss the options available to you.

“The therapy provided makes a big difference and with Mosaic, they negotiate a package at the beginning of the placement to give the child the support they need, as well as the foster parent too. So apply to Mosaic if you’re considering it, you’ll get the best support.”

Long-term Placements

Let us support you

We understand that this is a big decision so 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 priority and we will ensure all guidelines are followed with effective management, to minimise any disruption caused to the established fostering placement. If there are no foster children currently in a placement with you, the process is more streamlined.

“I have worked in care most of my life and I enjoyed it. I thought it would be rewarding. Moving to Mosaic, I just feel so much more supported, not only in the initial transfer process but also the placement too. We felt that by moving to a local agency it would allow the child in our care to mix with other foster children, and that we could mix with other foster parents.”

Why transfer to Mosaic Foster Care?

We are often contacted by foster parents who are debating changing foster agency for a variety of different reasons. This can include having concerns about their current agency or suspecting that Mosaic Foster Care could provide a more appropriate support service that they would expect to receive and that the child in their care needs.

“Reading about the support on offer just sounded great. From the therapy and safeguarding meetings to the support worker assigned to us, it’s a whole package. It was definitely the right decision to make the move, it has hugely benefitted us.”

transfer protocol

At Mosaic, we follow the 'transfer protocol’ developed by The Fostering Network to ensure that the transition of a foster parent between agencies is as seamless as possible for both the foster parent and for the child in a placement. The Transfer Protocols set out by The Fostering Network guide agencies in their decision making and are used to inform correct management of the transfer process. Find out more about the transfer of foster parents between agencies on The Fostering Network’s Transfer Protocols webpage.

“With Mosaic, it just felt right. I just felt that there would be so much more support, and you do need the support. Sometimes it is quite challenging and it makes a big difference when you get that support. Mosaic go the extra distance as well.”

If you are in the early stages of considering a move, please contact us and we will be happy to answer your questions and discuss any concerns you might have at this stage. We also have a Transfer Specialist who will be happy to have a confidential conversation with you.
