Transfer to Foster Care Matters

We aim to make any foster parent transfers as seamless as possible.

We welcome any approved foster parents registered with another fostering agency who wish to transfer from other agencies and join the Foster Care Matters Family.

Seamless Transfer Process

All foster parents have the right to freedom of transferring or moving between fostering services, with or without a child or young person in placement. We will follow The Fostering Network Transfer Protocol for England, working in agreement with your current fostering agency. We will be clear and transparent with you and your agency throughout this process.

As a children’s charity, Foster Care Matters ethos is to re-invest back into our fostering service to enable us to enhance our support offer to our foster parents and the children they care for. Therefore, we do not offer any transfer fees/payments for transferring foster parents.
