"Kaiser took our call on a Sunday when we were quite distressed. He sorted out the issue quickly and professionally. We are so grateful that we are with an organisation where we are supported 24/7. ACS don't just clock off at 5pm. They realise that children/carers don't stop needing support after 5pm or weekends."ACS Foster Carer
"It is a positive experience fostering for ACS. Lionel and I always feel supported as foster parents."Marva and Lionel Warmington, ACS foster carers
"Jenny was amazing yesterday with sorting out a respite placement. She handled it in a friendly and professional manner, making sure to follow up with me to make sure everything went ok. The whole process left me feeling honoured to be working with ACS."ACS Foster Carer
"I believe that following a faith is very helpful to children and young people."Karen Campbell, ACS foster carer
"Nasreen has been amazing with giving me helpful tips to deal with behaviour issues that I struggled with previously. She has a way of making the carer feel comfortable and speak about issues without feeling I am being judged. "ACS Foster Carer
"You have to look at fostering as a way of life and not a job."Megan Williams, ACS foster carer
"My proudest moment was when the child I care for told me, ‘This is my family now and you’re my father."Sabbir Ahmed, ACS foster carer
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.

- A comprehensive professional training programme
- Regular peer support group meetings
- Organised activities for you, your family and the children you look after

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.
