Transfer to FCA

As a current foster parent, you might be considering transferring fostering agencies with a move from your agency or local authority. You do so much for the children and young people you care for so we believe that your fostering provider should do the same for you. When you foster with us, you’re joining our family. With over 25 years’ experience, we’ve been fostering children and supporting foster parents since 1994.


When you transfer to FCA you will receive:

A dedicated social worker

You’ll have a dedicated supervising social worker who is your main point of contact. You’ll meet regularly to monitor progress, answer any queries and help you develop your skills.

24/7 Support

Our unique Team Parenting® model of support that forms a close-knit team of professionals around you and your foster child.

Excellent training and development

We are committed to providing high-quality training that is accessible and relevant to all of our foster parents.

Highly competitive fostering allowances

On average, our foster parents receive approx £400 per child, per week.

Education Support

We provide educational support to help to keep your foster child in school and achieving the best they can.

Therapy Service

Our therapists will help you understand your foster child so that you can find ways of responding to their needs that will make all the difference to them.

A thriving foster parent community

How transferring works

How transferring works

Transferring to a new fostering agency means going through the same process you went through when you first became a foster parent. However, since you’re already fostering, your application will be fast-tracked and the transferring process will be much faster and simpler.

FCA works with you, your current agency and local authority to make sure everyone is working together and that any children or young people placed with you are also supported during the move.

We’ll support you every step of the way and do all we can to make the process of joining us as simple as possible.
