Transferring Agency

Already fostering but looking for an authentic smaller family agency?

Brighter Todays, Brilliant Tomorrows

If you’re looking for a fostering provider who can help you find motivation, inspiration and a little bit extra speak to Wholistic Fostering. We’re possibly the most unique fostering agency you’ve experienced but, then, we were founded by a former foster child – naturally we do things a little differently.

We know fostering can often be a big decision for you, so we do everything we can to support you every step of the way. We make the process of joining our family as simple as possible.

We occupy a unique position in being an organisation started by a dual heritage former foster child – we come from a child centered perspective at the highest level of the organisation and we have an inbuilt appreciation and respect of cultural diversity. 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.
