...I think they are a great company to work for, I hope I can fulfil my working career with them. The staff are friendly, caring and very supportive. The other Foster Carers are very friendly also… I am very happy with this company and wouldn’t like to be anywhere else!
Speak to Fostering Options
We can help talk you through you with the process. We will not approach your current agency/Local Authority at the initial stage of your enquiry. However should you progress with your application we will follow the Fostering Network Transfer Protocol and request to read your fostering files.
The protocol is aimed at providing good practice guidelines when a foster carer wishes to transfer between fostering services. It recognises a foster carer’s right to freedom of movement.
Switching or transferring foster care providers may seem like a daunting task. Fostering Options are here for you every step of the way. We can help you find out whether transferring to us would be the right move for you and any children which you may already be looking after. Moving to another foster care provider is an important decision, and you need to carefully weigh up all the advantages and disadvantages. If you do decide to transfer to us we’ll sort out as much of the paperwork as possible to make the process straightforward for you.
If you feel that your existing providers are not giving you the right level of support, feel isolated or undervalued, then speak to us about becoming part of the Fostering Options family.
Fostering can be a challenging task but it is also one of the most rewarding. Here at Fostering Options we are committed to working with you to help children get a better chance in life.
Fostering Options is an established and progressive organisation committed to delivering a high quality service to children, young people, foster carers and local authorities across the South and West Midlands.
We work in partnership with all the local authorities in the region to offer a wide range of fostering placements for children and young people to meet their individual needs.
As an existing foster carer it is important that you work with a company that is able to fully support both the children and foster carers. A lot of carers from Local Authorities and other Agencies come to us and feel that there could be more done for themselves and the looked after children.
Fostering Options are committed to providing our foster carers with a support service that is accessible and effective. Foster Carers within the organisation can expect:
