Transferring fostering agencies

Why do foster carers transfer agencies?

Often, there may be a number of reasons why foster carers want to transfer foster agencies. It could be due to your agency or local authority being unable to provide you with the support you require, or whether you require more training than you’re currently being given to improve your foster carer skills.

Knowing when the right time is to transfer agencies is important to your journey of being the best foster carer you can be. Each agency provides something a little different, and here at Excel Fostering, we pride ourselves on our family-feel atmosphere. Despite having this family-feel, we have the wealth and experience of a larger company – making you feel in safe hands the minute you become a foster carer with us, as well as immediately becoming part of the family.  

We’ve got the capacity to maintain a local, small-agency atmosphere, while our network expands across the country. We work hard to recruit and train competent staff, while providing the level of care necessary to offer full support to foster carers. Learn some of the benefits of transferring to an independent fostering agency, like Excel Fostering.

Benefits of fostering with Excel Fostering

  • Training – typically, the level of training is a lot more extensive in an independent agency than what you would receive from a local authority. This is because we have more resource with our staff to provide this efficient level of training.
  • Support – similarly, the support provided in an independent fostering agency is usually much more than what you’d likely receive from a local authority. Excel Fostering pride ourselves in being able to provide 24-hour a day care, 7 days a week – meaning that one of our friendly team will always be on hand to support your fostering needs.
  • Experience – we have over a decade’s experience in recruiting, training and supporting foster carers. This level of experience allows us to concentrate on our primary focus – providing the best foster homes possible for children and young people.
  • Community feel – another thing we pride ourselves on is our family-feel agency. By transferring fostering agencies to Excel Fostering, you will immediately become a member of our family. This means that you’ll have the opportunity to meet other like-minded carers, share stories together about the world of fostering and receive unwavering support.
