Transfer to us

If you are an approved foster carer with another agency and would like to discuss transferring to Angus Council, please get in touch.

Fostering enquiry form

As a foster carer, you have the right to apply to and transfer to another agency.

After an initial discussion, we'll visit you at home to discuss the next steps. We'll discuss the care plans of any children placed with you, the views of the children in placement and the view of the current fostering provider.

If there is an agreement to process the transfer, you need to notify your current agency of your intent to move and a meeting (practice planning protocol meeting) will take place within four weeks. We will then agree on the transfer process.

What about your existing placements?

If you have a child in placement the transfer protocol will ensure their care plan is met throughout the transfer process. If the child, their parents and their social worker agrees, the child can remain in placement.

Why transfer to us?

  • You can get up to £26.5k caring for one child in your first year.
