Transferring from an IFA or another agency

If you already foster with an independent fostering agency (IFA) or another agency/service and wish to transfer to Shropshire Council, then get in touch.. Foster carers foster for different agencies and services for their own personal reasons, circumstances or values. But there are times in your life when these may change and a carer decides to move to foster for someone else.

In the first instance, one of our social workers can visit you at your home to explain the easy process of transferring to Shropshire Council or can call you to discuss transferring.

We can use your last Form F assessment and complete an ‘Update’ describing your fostering experiences to date.  If you have a child in placement we would hold a Transfer Protocol Meeting to ensure that the placement is not affected.

We offer competitive rates and experienced supportive supervising social workers, who already have well established direct links with the social work teams. In addition, we also offer an extensive training package and an active Foster Care Association and buddy system.

Get in touch with us today to find out more about joining Shropshire Fostering.
