You said…

Make a change for the better

If it’s time for a change from your current fostering provider, speak to ACS. We know it’s a big decision, so we’ll do what we can to support you every step of the way. We’ll make the process of joining our family as simple as possible.

We occupy a unique position in being an organisation dedicated to faith-based fostering. As such, we offer our foster carers highly specialised so-called ‘faith fostering’ support and training. The learning and experience you gain will help you in your fostering career.

The benefits of transferring to us

  • 24/7 practical and emotional support
  • A local team of friendly, professional social workers and support staff
  • Financial support and paid respite
  • A comprehensive professional training programme
  • Regular peer support group meetings
  • Organised activities for you, your family and the children you look after 
  • The support of key local community groups

How transferring works

When you transfer to a different fostering agency, you go through the same application and assessment process you did when you first became a foster carer. But because you are already fostering, you’ll be fast-tracked through the system, so it’ll be quick and easy.

Child already in placement?

The process of transferring will be slightly different, depending on whether or not you already have a child placed with you. Either way, we’ll work with you, your existing agency and the local authority to make sure everyone understands what will happen and that any children or young people placed with you are fully supported too.
