Transferring from your current fostering agency to us

If you are thinking about changing agencies please give our recruitment and assessment team a call on 0800 0969 626 or email fostering.recruitment@surreycc.gov.uk and someone from our team will get in touch.

Why transfer to us?

  • We have an ever-growing fostering community with local access to support groups and training
  • All children first come into care via their local authority. We look for the family that best meets their needs and ensure that all our resources go into caring for them and their foster carers. We will only use foster carers from independent agencies if we do not have enough foster carers of our own.
  • We ensure all of our foster carers receive the best support for every foster child living with them

Foster carers can only be registered with one agency at any given time and are always free to choose which agency they register with.

We have experience of working with foster carers who are looking to transfer from their current agency and the process we follow is covered by The Fostering Network's transfer of foster carers protocol
