Thinking of Moving Agency?


We can help talk you through you with the process.We will not approach your current agency/Local Authority at the initial stage of your enquiry. However should you progress with your application we will follow the Fostering Network Transfer Protocol and request to read your fostering files.

The protocol is aimed at providing good practice guidelines when a foster carer wishes to transfer between fostering services. It recognises a foster carer’s right to freedom of movement.

​Switching or transferring foster care providers may seem like a daunting task. Time for Children are here for you every step of the way. We can help you find out whether transferring to us would be the right move for you and any children which you may already be looking after. Moving to another foster care provider is an important decision, and you need to carefully weigh up all the advantages and disadvantages. If you do decide to transfer to us we’ll sort out as much of the paperwork as possible to make the process as straightforward for you.

If you feel that your existing providers are not giving you the right level of support, feel isolated or undervalued, then speak to us about becoming part of the Time for Children family.

Fostering can be a challenging task but it is also one of the most rewarding. Here at Time for Children we are committed to working with you to help children get a better chance in life.
