The quickest way to find out is to call us on 0117 955 5039 so we can guide you through it. It’s quite straightforward to transfer from your current fostering agency, or local authority to Amicus Foster Care. The process can vary slightly depending on who you are with now and whether or not you have any foster children staying with you.
If you do have a foster child staying with you at the moment, the first priority will be to make sure the transfer doesn’t disrupt their care. So within 28 days of starting the process, we’ll meet with you, your current agency – whether that be local authority or an independent agency, the local authority and the child’s social worker to agree the arrangements and start our assessment stage.
If you don’t have a foster child staying with you at the moment, the process is even easier, and we can move straight to the assessment stage, See the section ‘Application Process’.
For advice about making the change as smooth as possible, give us a ring on 0117 955 5039 or request a call back. We’re always happy to help.
