Many carers may worry about transferring from one agency to another, but you needn’t fret. Tower Hamlets has lots of experience in transferring foster carers and it is our aim to make the process as easy and as smooth as possible for you.
All approved foster carers have the right to change agencies and any placements you have can transfer with you as long as there is no detriment to any child placed. To find out more about your rights, please have a look at the Fostering Network Transfer Protocol.
In our experience some of the reasons carers have given for transferring to us are that they were not getting placements, quality support or the training opportunities they needed.
We understand that transferring can be a big step full of fears and uncertainties, so please give us a call for an informal chat. We can talk about the reasons you are thinking of transferring and let you know if we think you would benefit from joining our team.
